During the summer of June-July, 2019, I and others got to be part of a beach cleanup, and discussing the natural climate solutions necessary, to be specific, for California. Up there, I discovered how corals can be affected by rising heat temperatures, and learning where those places mainly occur. While using our time to Cleanup up any plastic along the way. An example of rising heat temperatures; Florida has had the worst heat rise in history, killing nearly half of the corals in the ocean within only 3 to 4 years.

Our generation is in mid danger of witnessing constant rejection of the oceans range of species, and the complexity loss of food sources necessary for human life. Having no idea these issues were so advanced, cities like Florida have lost nearly 80 to 90 percent of their corals, which computed to us losing 50 percent of the entire worlds corals, in the last 30 years.

After going to this week long trip with people who inspire to become involved with the oceans safety, I myself have developed a solid educational and inspirational passion for wanting to major in Marine Science.

It is not too late for coral reefs, actually for other ecosystems too, that are facing challenges from climate change. It is still possible to reduce the rate at which the climate is changing. We have the resources, we have the brains, we have the energy, we have the money. And as a society, that is within our power today.
