NPR Radio Expedition, "Coral Reefs in the Balance"

Just thought some of you would be interested in the story. Discusses how (part of) our hobby is affecting the reefs as well as other factors affecting the natural reefs.

As always, please do what you can to buy Tank bred livestock and aquacultered live rock. This promotes the industries efforts in researching new species to add to the tank bred list.

At the conference I attended over the aweekend we had a speaker from the national coral reef task force there. He stated that the affect us hobbists have on the reefs is very minimal as a whole compaired to other effects like sewage runoff into the ocean, fertilizer runoff, anchor dragging incidents, etc. Most of which we can do little to control as the countries where the best reefs are also some of the poorest counteries in the world.
