    I dived on the reef in 1968 and again this year in March! I can tell you the reef is dead! On the outer reef near heart reef the water quality is poor! So full of alge formed from the cane farm run offs that the reef is totally covered in slime which blocks any sunlight and kills the coral by smothering it. About fifteen feet down under overhanging reef you find all the bleached stag horn corals, all broken and scattered like bleached bones! Ha they tell us the reef is healthy! Liars!

    Sunscreen could also be bleaching the coral. All those chemicals they contain are bad.
