While diving yesterday (10/21/00) I observed bleaching of Maze Coral
(Meandrina meandrites) from Gulfstream to Lynn's Reef off Boynton Beach
Fl.  I have been diving this area for the last five years on a weekly
basis.  The bleaching has occurred within the last two weeks.  
Approximately 10-20% of this species is now affected, with some colonies
completely snow white.

Is there an agency or group this should be reported to?
