About this cause

About our cause

Coral reefs are beautiful habitats that support a huge diversity of life. Unfortunately the world's coral reefs are in trouble. Almost 30% of the world's corals have already been destroyed and that number is expected to double in the next 30 years if we don't do something to stop it. The sea urchin Diadema antillarum plays a huge role in reef health by preventing algal growth from overpowering the corals. However a disease in the 80s caused the death of 98% of sea urchins in the regions. The drop in sea urchins has severely affected coral health. Worryingly the sea urchins have not managed to recover well since the disease outbreak. As part of my final year undergraduate research project I will be travelling to Honduras for 6 weeks in June 2016. My research will include tracking these sea urchins and investigating how different factors affect their recovery as well as the recovery of the entire reef. My dissertation is a great opportunity for me to help restore these beautiful coral reefs. When I graduate as an environmental biologist I would love to make a difference in the world by restoring degraded habitats such as these wonderful corals. I would greatly appreciate if any of you could help me on my way to making that dream a reality.
