The White Line

Somewhere above the Tahiti reef. This reef protects Tahitians from big waves, and at the same time creates a calm lagoon where many species of fish can grow and be fished afterwards. With the warming of the oceans, the corals present on the reefs tend to die and directly impact the fish populations present that depend on them. If the temperature of the oceans continues to rise over the next few years, all the coral reefs will be dead, and it is highly likely that there will be no more resources to feed the men living on these islands. Save our reefs, save the men living on these islands. Let's change our harmful habits for our planet, and for ourselves.

This is a panoramic picture.
