  • Environmental pollution, climate change, and overfishing have caused the destruction of more than half of the world's coral reefs.
  • However, a group of researchers has found in Hawaii a species of coral that can withstand warmer and more acidic waters.
  • Scientists believe that the discovery of these "supercorals" represents a hope to preserve a part of the reefs that still remain in the oceans.
  • Nonetheless, the study suggests that if the impact of climate change and environmental pollution does not diminish, coral reefs will disappear from the planet.
