Reefs are bleaching in multiple locations across half of the southern hemisphere right now.
Our partners at Exposure Labs need divers in the field to help them document this event. Please watch the video call-to-action (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufs46jfhxiw&feature=youtu.be <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufs46jfhxiw&feature=youtu.be>) and consider volunteering (at http://goo.gl/forms/0pnyhLNAXi <http://goo.gl/forms/0pnyhLNAXi>) if you can help.

> Hi Mark,
> I hope you are doing well. We are doing really well documenting the bleaching currently in New Caledonia and on LIRS, but are realizing the limitations of our reach, and are now using a global call to action to engage photographers and divers globally to help us document the bleaching. Would you be able to send this out to your network? We have already connected with a number of people directly through your contacts, but would love to reach an even larger group of people.
> We are focusing on the following locations:
> Western Australia, South Pacific, Melanesia, Eastern Pacific, Coral Triangle,
> Indian Ocean, Southeast Asia, Western Africa
> If you know of any underwater photographers within your local diving, photographic, and scientific networks in these regions please forward this VIDEO call-to-action <https://youtu.be/Ufs46jfhxiw> )https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufs46jfhxiw&feature=youtu.be <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ufs46jfhxiw&feature=youtu.be>) and attachment (below), and help our efforts to locate volunteers who can assist us in this process of documentation.
> Those who may be interested can please fill out this form <http://goo.gl/forms/0pnyhLNAXi>
