Recent flooding may have reduced the remaining coral population by 90%. Combined with damage from fishing, boating and coastal development, the species may be gone in a decade.
Seabirds journey vast distances across the Earth’s seascapes to find food and to breed. This means their biology, particularly their breeding success, can reveal what's happening in our oceans.

The maintenance required for renewable tech like windfarms can harm the environment. Robots are helping solve that.
To get a sense of how bad the 2021 hurricane season will be, keep an eye on the African monsoon, ocean temperatures and a possible late-blooming La Niña.
The ocean moderates climate change by absorbing CO₂ emissions, hosts valuable biodiversity and provides food to millions, but all of these services are threatened by pollution and human activities.
Tackling bycatch in large-scale fishing can make our seafood habit more sustainable
These tiny organisms play a huge role in fighting climate change, but they're under threat.
Scientists watched in real time as rising ocean heat transformed the sprawling reef. It was a harbinger for ecosystems everywhere as the planet warms.
The UN's Ocean Decade demands collaborative action across disciplines, nations, communities, and generations, and its success relies on diverse voices that represent current and future ocean leaders.
Sea level is still rising, and when that lunar cycle starts upward again, it will mean double trouble for places like Miami.

Volcanic eruptions on the seafloor are mysterious, but new research provides fresh clues.
Scientists are starting to use genetic information from bacteria to measure the health of vast areas of the ocean.
Harmful algae blooms are an increasing problem in Florida. Once nutrients are in the water to fuel them, little can be done to stop the growth, and the results can be devastating for marine life.
Climate change has already made tropical oceans too hot for some marine species to survive. As they flee towards the poles, the implications for ecosystems and human livelihoods will be profound.
Climate change is strengthening the division between the ocean surface and the abyss.
