Galapagos Archipelago is a model of conservation in the Pacific Ocean. Its remarkable diversity of marine species is
explained by the upwelling of cold ocean currents. But an increasingly common climatic anomaly occurring
far out to sea is killing life. It's El
Niño. Scientists believe that climate
change could cause the frequency and severity of this climatic phenomenon to
double threatening native species that are unique in the world. In French Polynesia, biologists are studying
corals and working to predict the impact of climate change on the future of our
oceans and on global food security.
