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.
