Impacts of bleaching in the Marshalls

Bleaching has a huge impact on the Marshall Islands. Coral bleaching can lead to coral death, which will be a disaster for the islands in the Marshalls. It can lead to many oceanic problems such as decrease in fish and rougher waters. A decrease in fish could occur because fish depend on coral and algae for food. If the coral dies from bleaching, it will lead to fish starvation and extinction. Rough waters could be caused by coral not breaking apart large waves. Such as here in the Marshalls, our island is built up on a mountain of coral that breaks down waves, protecting us from tsunamis. Thus, this is why we created our organization to try and inform people on the disasters of which coral bleaching is.
