ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Belizean reef system, which has received a rating decline in the 2006 Places Rated survey. Visitors to the Belize reef system may recall seeing whale sharks or sea turtles or manatees. However, global warming is threatening the reef with waters that are literally too hot for coral to handle, causing bleaching, and seas that could rise faster than the already-stressed reefs can grow taller.
