Hurricanes kill corals and biodiversity

Saint-Pierre, Martinique, November 11

Hurricanes are devastating on the surface, destroying everything in their path with dramatic effects on people and infrastructure. However, these phenomena affect the seabed with the same violence. During our time in Martinique 2 weeks ago, Monaco Explorations captured some of this devastation near Saint-Pierre. There are dead corals and extinct biotopes.
