Around the globe, coral is in danger. Ocean acidification, warming temperatures, and pollution have all caused huge damage to reefs, and slow growing corals. Antonio Rodríguez Canto spent a year photographing coral to capture these colorful time-lapse movements. Biodiversity on the planet is crucial, and videos like these help illustrate the beauty of planet earth, and hopefully spur action to save these fragile ecosystems.

As the oceans get more warm and acidic, fragile reefs are dying out, and they take with them some of the most biodiverse, and incredible life we’ve ever seen. A video called Slow Life is simply mesmerizing, showcasing some of the gorgeous and extraordinary details of this amazing reef.

….stunning….humbling….. Great great work…
No truer words have been spoken! Dang humans!

We really need to do something about this issue, but I am afraid too much damage has already occurred….sad.
