Reefs at Risk in Southeast Asia
The coral reefs in Southeast Asia are the most threatened in the world. About 95 percent are at risk from local threats (i.e., coastal development, overfishing/destructive fishing, marine-based pollution, and/or watershed-based pollution), with almost half in the high and very high threat categories. The few places that are in the low-threat category are located in the more sparsely populated eastern areas.
