According to the IUCN, our reefs are among the most threatened ecosystems on earth. Some of the factors which are killing the corals are the increasing temperature of our oceans, ocean acidification, coral bleaching, unethical fishing methods, water pollution, sedimentation, and human activities.
Corals constantly play a balancing act with the waters they have to work with and can undergo only so much bleaching before they just can't continue and they die.
It is our choice to catch our behavior in time to save this ecosystem and the number one way is to be mindful of our carbon footprint and unnecessary consumption habits.
NOTE: Throughout the work, you will find one's and zeroes and groups of many different symbols. The binary code(ones and zeroes) is the base language for all computers which make all technology possible. I incorporate the binary code to remind us how computers are penetrating every nook of life. I actually spell words that have been translated from our alphabet to binary code. The clutter of symbols parallel mnemonics with amnesia. An idea inspired by a universal feeling of information overload oftentimes resulting in memory lapse.
