The International Society for Reef Studies (ISRS) releasee a New Consensus Policy Statement on Climate Change. The statement outlines the effects of both ocean warming and ocean acidification in damaging and coral reefs internationally. The ISRS calls on all nations to take the action necessary to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius for the next twelve years. The 2018 Special Report of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change maps out four pathways to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, with different combinations of land use and technological change.

    Hello! I am very interested in the ReefCheck training. How much does it cost? I have recently graduated with a degree in Marine Biology and wish to expand my knowledge in the area of conservation. I spoke to Heather after a dive when we were visiting Kona in January 2019. I expressed my interest in volunteering in any way possible with her coral reef project. I have a great deal of passion and enthusiasm and I even did a research paper on cauliflower coral. If you have any need for my help on any future projects I would love to hear from you.
    Thank you for your time!
