"Belize is home of a 200-mile long section of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System—the second largest in the world! Barrier reefs are underwater ecosystems that are built by thousands of tiny marine organisms. The problem is, these ecosystems are extremely fragile—very sensitive to water temperature. Warmer air and ocean temperatures (brought on by climate change) impacts coral and damage reef communities by prompting “coral bleaching”. When corals aren’t able to absorb to food that they need to survive, they turn white..."
