Hundreds-of-year-old corals frozen to death


Divers stunned

page delimiter


30 Jan 10 - Divers were stunned by what they saw when diving in patch reef 2.5 miles off Harry Harris Park in Key Largo, Florida.

"Star and brain corals, large species that can take hundreds of years to grow, were as white and lifeless as bones, frozen to death," said this article in the Miami Herald. "There were also dead sea turtles, eels and parrotfish littering the bottom."

The record cold that gripped South Florida for two weeks in January took a heavy toll on marine life.

"Shallower reefs took a serious, perhaps unprecedented hit, said Billy Causey, Southeast regional director of national marine sanctuaries for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration."

"The impact could extend from Key Largo through the Dry Tortugas west of Key West, a vast expanse that covers some of the prettiest and healthiest reefs in North America."

          Had you heard about this? If these corals had been killed
          by record warmth, you can bet that the headlines would
          have been plastered across the front pages of newspapers
          around the world.
