The Artdog  Quote-Pairing of the Week 

The image shows a quote from Leo Babauta, "Do what matters, now," and an hourglass that's running out of sand at the top.
This informational image is a photo of a boat on the water, and the words: "Coral reefs are disappearing twice as fast as the rainforest. About one fifth of the world's coral reefs has already been lost or severely damaged. Another 35% could be lost within 10-40 years."

If we’re not worried about the world’s ailing coral reefs, we’re fooling ourselves. Coral reefs are not only vital to our oceans, but there are important things we can do to help them.

I kicked off last month with a video about climate change refugees. It featured a call to proactive action. This month, I’m pairing quotes about being proactive in one’s life with quotes about climate change. It’s not too late to mitigate the effects–including helping bring our world’s ailing coral reefs back to health.

Let’s do what matters–and coral reefs matter. We must act now.
