Malaysian coral under threat: AlJazeera video clip

Al Jazeera's Stephanie Scawen has been investigating the effects on Malaysia's Tioman Island.
Scientists have said that the first seven months of this year brought the hottest combined sea and land temperatures to parts of Southeastt Asia, since records began.

That has led to some of the worst coral bleaching the region has ever seen.

Malaysia had closed many sites to divers to allow the corals to recover. Although the water temperature has fallen, experts fear 20% of the affected corals may still die.
