Another sad but relative article about the natures reefs. The article talks about this event reaching all the way to the barrier reefs as well as the coral triangle and that spells super bad news for the entire worlds marine ecosystem.

http://www.gbrmpa.gov.au/media-room/latest-news/coral-bleaching/2016/coral-mortality-rises-in-remote-far-north

This second link talks a little more about it in general and provides more links to information pertinent to the subject.

This is a whole load of information regarding environment and such but further down is more in the dismal outlook.

This one is about the Hawaii coral bleach event aftermath and it has some good facts about resilience of certain corals. I see that Porites is a super hardy coral.

So maybe if there was a combination of coral and algae\dino environmental resistance there would be some hope for a select few coral species...Is it the Porites again? No offense Porites.
