I have just found that an intense bleaching event was occurring in some
Venezuelan reefs (Morrocoy National Park) on the western coast of the
country. This observation was made on Sep. 16 while colleagues went out to
watch coral spawing in the park reefs. Water temperatures of up to 32
Celsius were registered down to 8 m deep. Water temperatures were 28
Celcius at 12 m deep.
