Survey confirms worst-ever coral bleaching at Great Barrier Reef


Only 7% of the GBR reefs have escaped bleaching so far, 80% of the reefs in
the north are severely bleached, and some reefs in the northern section
have 50% coral mortality.  Also, up to 80% of the reefs in Western
Australia now have bleaching as well.


Cheers,  Doug
