The Australian Institute of Marine Science has just published it's annual
update from it's coral reef monitoring team, on how coral on the GBR has
been doing, including graphs of coral cover over 30 years.  I found it
fascinating, and encouraging that it wasn't all bad news.  If you're
feeling down and thinking that maybe it is all hopeless, take a look at the
graph for the southern GBR.  Who would have guessed what happened there the
last few years???  Don't give up hope, don't give up the fight to save
