For the past two years Tara Pacific expedition has traversed the Pacific conducting research to understand the evolution of coral reefs in the context of demographic and climate change. The Coral Triangle area (Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, the Philippines, Papua) has over 30% of the world’s reefs and it is considered that nearly 80% of the reefs are threatened with extinction in the short term due to population growth in the area causing overexploitation, pollution, construction, and ultimately the degradation of coastal areas where coral reefs are located.  Learn More
