Reefs in Brief: dugongs die in gill nets and more

Dugongs were recently found drowned in gill nets in Abu Dhabi. Abandoned gill nets are a problem on Singapore shores too, and threaten our dugongs as well.

High tides are expected to exacerbate flooding over Christmas weekend in the region.

High tides are expected in Malaysia and Indonesia and Singapore too. Meanwhile, there were reports that sea level rise could be twice as high as earlier thought.

And in It's time to put greens in their place on the Economist, there is a discussion of the serious consequences of "terrestrialism" and the need to focus on the seas.
