Where Corals Go To Die
Everybody knows the legend of the elephants. When elephants die, they leave their group and go off to die alone, in the “elephants graveyard”. Their bones can be found years later, piled up with the skeletons of many elephants.
Where do corals go to die? They’re animals too, but lacking the ability to move like elephants, they die enmasse in place. And they’re dying all over the world.
It’s not receiving the attention that it deserves. As usual, the majority of the human contingent, the dominating species on this planet, simply doesn’t care enough to put a stop to the reasons why corals are dying by the millions worldwide.
So rather then bore readers with more of this indictment of our civilization, here as some pretty pictures instead:
Pretty awesome. There’s a lot of beauty out there, if you can still find some of it. But the widespread coral deaths probably means you will only see things like this in books and on the Internet. A testament to our ingenuity and genius of course, it’s the cheapest way to preserve anything. But is it just me, or is something missing with this approach?
Here’s the proof that corals really do have larger brains then humans:
And here’s a guy looking for some coral, but he can’t seem to find any –
Don’t let anyone try to convince you that humans are the smartest species on the planet.
Oh, almost forgot to ask – where are you going to go when it’s your time to die? I can still see a little space of beach left there in the picture above, that might accomodate a few people, perhaps more if you stack their bodies one on top of the other…

Very beautiful, sadly we are killing this planet one species at a time. Ironically yet fitting, humans will be last! ~~~~
That’ll be Nature’s way of giving us the final chance to mourn over all that we lost and destroyed. While we eat our own dead.
