The ocean is warming. Coral reefs are dying.
But there is hope.
500 million people worldwide depend on coral reefs for their survival.
We are discovering reefs across the tropics that can survive warming. And we're looking for more.
They are super reefs.
Below are a few we've already found.
Rock Island, Palau
Racha Noi, Thailand
Kanton, Phoenix Islands
Science tells us other super reefs exist.
We need to find them and protect them.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has teamed up Stanford University and The Nature Conservancy, and we're collaborating with the United Nations, Government of Kiribati, Polynesian Leaders Group, Conservation International, National Geographic, and Pangaea Exploration to do just that.
Watch. Listen. Learn.
