excerpt from above:
Quote:
...“There is a general consensus among coral biologists globally that land use patterns, degradation of coastal wetlands and overfishing contribute to reef degradation. Perhaps these factors should be considered as part of a comprehensive coastal health management plan for the islands.”

While there is no question that this bacteria is killing coral colonies around Kaua‘i, Work is optimistic that positive change can happen. It’s up to the local community to make the hard decisions about what it wants for the future of its reefs, he said.

“When you insult an ecosystem enough, it will go south,” he said. “But it can be reversed.”
