TGIF – 100% live coral cover

Right now our own @rmacpherson is in the Pacific, talking coral and shark conservation Fiji.  In honour of his trip, here is a beautiful video of 100% live acroporid coral cover in the nearby Solomon Islands, shot by Bruce Carlson.  I offer it as evidence for this TGIF that there are still many beautiful and wonderful places to see in the oceans.  Its also a bit of self-therapy since I’ve been working on reef degradation stuff all week.  Sure reefs are threatened, but lets take a moment today to enjoy coral reefs as they still are in some special places and certainly how they are meant to be: colorful, noisy and full of life and form. Do yourself a favour, put it on 1080p and go full screen…

Roll over to Bruce’s YouTube channel and check out his other stuff.
