Coral Reef Bleaching Alert Dashboard
by Wgdesign (Non-governmental organization (NGO))
Coral reef alert system is a dashboard that reviews incoming ocean data and determines the probability of a coral reef warning event. The dashboard will alert users to a higher risk level. This will enable area personnel to gather vulnerable species, quarantine acidificated areas, and eventually apply zoopharmacologic medications.

Treatments and further studies in coral reef sustainability and regrowth are presently investigated.
In the last two years since this concept introduction many hopeful possible solutions for revitalizing bleached coral areas are under discussion and development. Wgdesign dashboard will assist further research and community early alert and monitoring. Provide employment for several underrepresented groups.
