  1. If you are interested in mental illnesses and human behavior as well as the corresponding biochemistry and evolution, I can really recommend searching for "Prof. Robert Sapolsky" (Stanfort). He has some really good lectures here on YouTube and on Audible.

  2. This is a very real problem many of us can only see behind a screen. Many NGO's (non-governmental organizations) are doing their best to research and implement recovery efforts in these bleaching areas. I can agree that this would have a negative effect on tourism in said regions, but sadly without the intervention of governmental capital and authority, there is only so much that can be done. This is a daunting thought to digest, especially in third world countries where a lot of coral reefs are concentrated in. Corruption and drug violence within some of these coastal areas will dumb down this disaster as there are more serious concerns for GO's to think about. I hate to leave such a negative comment, even marine scientists know that there is a tipping point of no return on the health of these delicate ecosystems, and given how much of a carbon sink the oceans are, we can only imagine how acidic the ocean has become.

  3. Always appreciate any marine protection topics featured on this channel – though it's kind of depressing to think about the state the planet is in. It's really important to raise ecological awareness, but not to spread the notion it's too late to do something about it anyway. Doing nothing because you don't care or because you have given up is not much of a difference, is it?

  4. I for one believe that this grief is mainly caused by global warming (climate change). Hoping that enough of the reef will survive although I won't be betting on it. Sad but I don't see how countries are wanting to significantly slow down CO2 emissions much less reverse it. Especially that climate change deniers are not even backing down. Good luck to the Great Barrier Reef, scuba divers and humanity as a whole. On the bright side, nature will find a way to survive when us humans go the way of the dodo.

  5. Watching this from Australia. When I heard that the Great Barrier Reef was dying I got very depressed and then I booked a liveaboard to see if it was true. Oh boy, those were some sad dives. I came back from that trip devastated and hopeless. Then I watched David Attenborough's documentary and I felt even worse.
    Anyways, I love your channel guys, keep it up!
