More Alarm for Coral Reefs and the Economy

The BBC explains.

One assessment published two years ago by the UN Environment Programme (Unep) concludes reefs provide services worth on average between $100,000 and $600,000 (£50,000 and £300,000) per square kilometre each year.

If the Reefs go, that’s not only a loss for the environment and the health of most species on the planet, it’s a loss of a ton of money!
