The loss of coral reefs is a complicated phenomenon and involves a host of factors. Pollution from onshore, including sewage effluent, agricultural runoff, and sediments promote the growth of algae that suffocates corals, and pollutants like PCBs, pesticide residues, heavy metals and other chemicals are also damaging to corals.

Multiple factors are involved in the proliferation of harmful algal blooms. One key cause is excess fertilization.
Not all deserts are the same—in fact, the state of Arizona has four distinct deserts, differentiated by their geography, elevation, rainfall patterns, and plant and animal species. The Sonoran Desert encompasses 120,000 square miles of southwestern Arizona, southeastern California, and in Mexico, northwestern Sonora and most of the Baja Peninsula. With nearly 3500 species of plants, 500 species of birds, and 1,000 species of bees, the Sonoran is the most biodiverse desert on earth.
Climate changes are projected to cause considerable stress to the wildlife of the Southwest region and to the habitats upon which they depend.
