bacterial infection of Hawaii coralThis website was created in response to a fast-growing crisis, a bacterial infection of the coral reefs on Oahu and Kauai. This white coral disease has been found along the reefs of the north shore of Kauai and as far south as Ahukini Landing off Lihue. A similar bacterial infection has been observed in Kaneohe Bay on Oahu.

The alarming fact is the rate of growth of this bacteria. Corals, fifty years old are dying in a matter of months, even weeks. Please watch the video narrated by Terry Lilley, the formost expert on this outbreak.
