Endangered Reefs, Threatened People

7 months ago

In a recent study, a group of scientists mapped human dependence on coral reefs and future threats to them. The findings are worrying – many places where people depend on coral reefs are the same places that are mostly likely to suffer damage from climate change and ocean acidification.


Large numbers of people living in coastal areas of Southeast Asia are at greatest risk from both future bleaching and ocean acidification, while many other regions where people depend on coral reefs face high risk from at least one of these threats.

This story map highlights the main findings from this study in an interactive format that merges text with interactive maps.
