The living corals are very sensitive to the long-term changes of climate such as the variations of temperature at the surface of the sea. They also lose their symbiotic algae where they are physiologically stressed; the symbiotic algae are the one who gives the corals their colors and nutrients. Without it, the coral become white and bleached and if the bleaching is too long, the corals can die. The living corals are stressed by the people’s snorkeling and diving. That’s why some strategies of adaptation have been taken like the raising of the people` s awareness, and some programs of damages identification.
