Did you know that coral reefs could be gone within a generation if we don't take action?
Coral reefs have thrived on Earth for over 200 million years, yet climate change is severely threatening their survival. Increases in sea surface temperatures, rising sea levels, and more frequent and severe storms lead to coral bleaching, degradation, and death.
This Earth Day, help protect our coral reefs by lending your support to the Earth Day 2010 Climate Declaration. You can help motivate Congress to pass a comprehensive climate and clean energy bill to rebuild our economy, secure energy independence, and address the climate crisis threatening the future of the world's coral reefs.
We've already lost almost 20 percent of the world's coral reefs. Scientists predict that unless we take immediate action, we could lose most of our remaining reefs by 2050! We have a narrow window of time to affect positive change, and the time to act is NOW.
Sign the petition! Show Congress that America is serious about clean energy and a sustainable future.
Working together, we can save the world's remaining coral reefs. Learn more about how you can help by reducing carbon emissions, making responsible environmental choices, and supporting the efforts of the Coral Reef Alliance.
The oldest biological community on the planet needs our help, and with your support we are building a worldwide community to save it.
