Does it really matter what it's about? It is probably more about protecting the hotels and beaches, but it also helps conserving local reef ecosystems.. To me, this sounds like a win-win situation. I reckon, unfortunately, people mostly only care about the reefs when they realise they will lose money by loosing the reefs but we need all the hands to reduce negative effects on coral reef ecosystems. This means even the ones that have different interests.

So I've seen this story pop up repeatedly on social media and I can't help but think that the headline is misleading. Seems to me that this enterprise is more focused on protecting hotels and beaches from storm surge rather than it is about conserving local coral reef ecosystems. Is this a sign that I have become too cynical? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-20/a-coral-reef-gets-an-insurance-policy-of-its-own Regards, Steve Sent from my iPhone _______________________________________________ Coral-List mailing list Coral-List at coral.aoml.noaa.gov http://coral.aoml.noaa.gov/mailman/listinfo/coral-list
