No time to lose

The Great Barrier Reef has lost more than half of its corals since 1995, according to a new Australian Research Council (ARC) report.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies research showed the reef’s small, medium and large coral populations had all declined over the past three decades, largely due to bleaching events in 2016 and 2017.

“There is no time to lose – we must sharply decrease greenhouse gas emissions ASAP,” the researchers said.
