Jardines de la Reina bleaching


Recommended Posts

I mentioned a month or so ago that I expected to find significant bleaching during our nearly two-week liveaboard in the Jardines.  I really hadn't imagined the carnage we'd find.  I'm working on a trip report, but in the meantime, the attached article by accomplished author Robert Osborne was published in the recent edition of X-Ray Mag.  The before (May 2023) and after (October 2023) images are striking.  Water temperatures are coming down--we had mostly 81-82f, but had one dive at 78f--so fingers crossed for recovery, but it's hard to imagine the Jardines being the garden it once was anytime soon.
