World

The world is blue. In this ocean issue-driven section, we share perspectives on the multiple issues that today are severely punishing our marine environment. The destruction of the world’s coral reefs resulting in coral bleaching and die-off; the effects of ocean acidification; over fishing, shark finning and the need for marine sanctuaries; marine pollution; sea level rise and climate change are all topics that we bring to you and that you need to understand.

Plus, we will tell you of the organizations that are addressing these big issues, and the actions you can take to be a part of the solution.
