First of all, how many of you have played WhyReef?
WhyReef is one of my favorite games on Whyville. Like all Whyville games it is educational, fun, and engaging. What's more, it centers around one of Whyville's most beautiful natural features - the Coral Reef.
But lately, it seems a great danger has befallen our beloved North Reef. While the corals are bleached, the populations of producers such as sea grass and turf algae have skyrocketed. And while the population of sea urchins, the natural consumers of turf algae, is increasing at an alarming rate, higher carnivore populations have taken a turn for the worse.
After careful consideration, I have deduced that the driving cause of this mess is due to coral bleaching.
