Scientists have mapped coral reefs in the Caribbean to identify those most likely to survive climate change.
Corals with the highest potential to escape destruction from marine heat waves are predominantly located along the northern shoreline of Cuba. Other promising sites are clustered around The Bahamas, Dominican-Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, eastern Jamaica and the US State of Florida.
