quote: While scientists generally agree on the problems facing coral reefs they aren’t necessarily on the same page when it comes to how to save the corals.

Should coral reefs be returned to their most natural state and defended against the elements that threaten their existence?

Some researchers say the time has passed for that approach to be effective, or even feasible. They want what limited funding they have to be directed at maintaining the coral reefs that provide the most value, whether that’s food security or economic dependency.

“I’m really pragmatic about where we are; it’s not good,” she says. “I’m also very aware of the fact that we have very little time to settle the debate.”

The risk of doing nothing is too high.
