Coral Bleaching.

Phuket, Thailand

Caption: Since the end of April the coral in the Andaman sea has started bleaching due to the increase in sea water temperature. If things don't cool down soon the coral may die. You can see the white patches in the photo that are mainly table coral and normally a dark colour.

Sad but true! We have the same problem here in the Florida Keys!

thank you for sharing your part of the world. Sad to see that we are losing such lovely paradise because some folks just don't care how much they pollute.

Hi Dawn, thank you for the lovely photo and reminding us that every day is Mother's Day ... that Mother Earth needs our respect and love and that if we take care of her we will in turn be nurtured by her. Hugs, Rose

Hi! My name is Dawn, I run a restaurant on Bon Island in Phuket, Thailand. It's a wonderful little island, so whan I have the time I like to catch it's beauty with my Nokia N82. The weather here can be quite dramatic, anything from a beautiful sunny day to a violent tropical storm. The island is very rocky and rises high above sea-level, which was a major factor in protecting us from the 2004 Tsunami disaster. The photo you see here was taken on the beach at Bon Island just three days after Tsunami hit Phuket, the beach was beautifully clean and the sea the clearest we had ever seen, sadly the coral reef got very badly damaged and now, three years later we are starting to see it's recovery along with the return of many little fish. I feel very safe here on the Island and wouldn't choose to be anywhere else! Create your own visitor map!
