This is a good reminder for the coral listers to join our petition:


While there is a lot of concern about climate change impacting coral
reefs, this coral reef by a local threat may disappear very soon. Here
is an opportunity for all the Coral-Listers to respond to the question
of whether science still matters.

We already got a letter of support from the Society of Conservation
Biology and we sent it to the Colombian President

The Vice President German Vargas Lleras who will run for the next
presidential election said to the media that IF the scientific
community formally request him with evidence of the existence of this
coral reef and IF there are coral reef studies that supports that
dredging close to a coral reef may destroy it, then, He will stop the
project!! Therefore, it is still time for your action by joining to
the petition above of writing new ones directly to the Colombian
President Juan Manuel Santos.

Many thanks for being part of the salvation of this coral reef
