I thought this would be a good forum to start! As divers, I think it's important to be aware of how the marine environment is shifting and changing due to human impacts. Post here if you have recently been on a trip and seen coral bleaching. Be sure to answer where you were, what time of year, and how extensive the bleaching is.
