Dear Editor:I am writing to express my concerns with the large coral bleaching event that hasbeen occurring recently. As a possible solution, I request that the community assists inplanting coral larvae to help bring back the coral population in Guam waters. The current bleaching event has caused many negative effects of Guam’s coralreefs because the corals are being more exposed to the sun. This is causing the corals tostress out and resulting in rejecting the algae that provides most of the corals neededcalories and nutrients. If the bleaching lasts any longer, it is highly likely that Guam maylose most of our coral reef system. Guam heavily relies on this environmental servicebecause of its natural ability to break big waves before it reaches our beaches. Thecommunity has benefited from this service because the waves do not come into our islandand destroy our homes and such. If coral larvae are preserved, then the coral reefs may have a chance of surviving
