Scientists: Warming water 'cooking' Great Barrier Reef

Australia has pledged more than 500 million Australian dollars ($379 miillion) to help preserve the Great Barrier Reef, in an attempt to help better protect the world heritage site from the effects of climate change.

Marine heat waves caused by global warming killed off and damaged corals in 2016. Most of the impact was along 500 miles of the northern Great Barrier Reef, its most pristine region.

'Shocking' levels of bleaching

Aerial surveys conducted in April last year showed more than two-thirds of the coral in the Barrier Reef had experienced "shocking" amounts of bleaching.

I believe in this report it was mentioned since that heatwave in 2016 a further 30% of corals had died.  

 

Here’s a quote from this site i read of what happens when the reefs die out. https://science.howstuffworks.com/science-vs-myth/what-if/what-if-all-coral-reefs-disappeared.htm

 

So what happens if the coral reefs vanish completely? Some experts predict hunger, poverty and political instability as the livelihoods of the peoples of entire countries disappear. Once the coral is dead, the reefs will also die and erode, destroying important marine life spawning and feeding grounds. Animals that rely on coral for protection and cover, such as grouper, snapper, oysters and clams, would also be negatively impacted. And because this marine life is a vital staple in many peoples' diets, the death of the coral reefs would exacerbate the problem of feeding these groups
