There are many ways to make positive impacts, no single individual is
going to be able to reverse the whole decline....but to use an old
expression if we keep thinking globally, but acting locally we can
make continual small improvements to our coral reef ecosystems and
hopefully as we gain more and more tools and more and more
understanding those continual small improvements will add up to better
habitats and ecosystems and maybe...just maybe..preserve some portion
of our coral reef ecosystems.  The point is to never give up hope.
