Great Barrier Reef Fish "Starving To Death"

FISH species on the Great Barrier Reef are starving to death because climate change is killing off their food source, an environmental study has found.

More details here:

Sad, sad, sad reality of today's environmental conditions.

climate change is killing off/bleaching the reef? or is it pollution? the latter would make more sense

It's a bad problem. Coral reefs are diverse ecosystems and when the corals get bleached and die, then everything else is affected.

Pollution/runoff is one factor that causes corals to bleach, but mostly it is because of extreme temperatures and higher levels of UV radiation. The corals get stressed from abrupt changes and react by bleaching.
