Elkhorn corals are unique underwater animals that build living structures and shelter for other species. In north Haiti, these endangered corals are most common on very shallow reefs, and most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. In the shallows Elkhorn have adapted to a tough environment, but can they, and the amazing ecosystems they build, survive this? 📸@haitiuncut #climatechange #marineconservation #EarthCapture
