Dear Coral listers-
I am forwarding a bleaching report from Dr. Pat Colin, Coral Reef Research Foundation, Palau:

"We're having a major coral bleaching event here in Palau now.  The water is 87-89 degrees F and about 75% of corals in water less than 50 feet are bleached.  Don't know what the eventual impact will be, but looks really awful now."
