What do we know at this point about how the disease spreads?

Climate change makes corals more vulnerable to local threats. After the
dredging, enlargement of ports and increase of massive tourism with
cruises, in Colombia, the National Geographic Pristine Expedition
reported to CORALINA (Manager of the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve) the
observation of SCTLD at the North Keys.


Applying transdisciplinary science, science of loss and policy science, I
agree with Phil Dustan, it seems that the near Reef Futures is Closing
Coral Reefs from unsustainable development. Prevention is more effective
than trying to cure or restore afterwards with denials !!
