Punta Mita Coral Reef Restoration Press Conference

August 30, 2016

At the August 30 press conference Sonnenschein and his team will reveal how, in just three weeks, they have restored the missing corals and brought schools of colorful fish back to Punta de Mita, Mexico.

Punta de Mita, Nayarit, Mexico - On Tuesday, August 30 at 3:30 pm, Leonard Sonnenschein, a top UN Ocean consultant and president of the World Aquarium and its Conservation for the Oceans Foundation, is hosting a press conference at Puerto Vallarta's Technological Institute in Nayarit.

His UN team is holding it in conjunction with representatives of the local stakeholder community including port authority, national water commission, Navy, fisheries and marine authorities of the Mexican Government, local tourism organizations, local hotels, marine biology professors and other NGO representatives.

Together they will reveal their amazing test results of how they have restored the missing corals and brought back schools of colorful fish of nearby prestigious Punta de Mita, in just three weeks.

This is wonderful news for Puerto Vallarta fishermen and tourists, since the beautiful living coral reefs are the spawning home for fish and the tourists who come to see them. Coral has been rapidly declining worldwide from our warmest oceans in history, especially from this extended El Niņo, so fishermen need to go further and further away from ports. See "93% of Australia's Great Barrier Reef threatened by coral bleaching that is putting their tourism and 70,000 at risk."

Said Sonnenschein, "Our team's micro minerals-nano technology formula is also an all natural solution for restoring sponges and plant life, as well as phyto- and zoo- plankton, which is food for many ocean inhabitants, including whales, so more may be returning next season. This treatment was also seen to be effective in remediating pollutants that were coming from a nearby resort creek runoff and restoring the vitality of the nearby inter tidal zone ecosystem." So our Banderas Bay will be even more turquoise.

This is Great News, since "Plankton is an even greater converter of CO2 to oxygen than all the rain forests and plants," says National Geographic. So if this cost-effective solution spreads to the world ports it could help restore our endangered World's Oceans and their abundant fish, and bring us down to a survivable 1.5C faster than Usain Bolt!
