I last dove this site in 2012 and have never forgotten it as it was just so beautiful. My log book compares it to an 'aquarium'. I was much saddened on this return visit to see the extent of bleaching and mortality at this site from 50' and up. It wasn't a 'bad dive' at all with still much to see and it's possible that because the viz was down to about 60' on this day, that my opinion was decreased, but it has definitely suffered over the last 5 years. I made the decision after this dive to do everything I can to reduce my carbon footprint and to bring awareness to others on the potential fate of our reefs. If we don't change up from a hydrocarbon based fuel source, we could lose them all world-wide. My local GOP senator's office can now recognize my phone number on their caller ID and answer, 'Hello Jim'. I will not relent on this. I hope others in the dive community will join this effort.
