We have recently discovered underwater living treasures around the island of Gyaros in the Cyclades Life project. Elina and Christos, WWF's scientists who devoted the last 2 years of their life to protecting the underwater treasures of Gyaros are not prepared to just stand and watch them die from global warming.

They were both genuinely appalled by the shocking evidence of coral bleaching caused by warming waters that has recently come to light. The thought that the same fate might await the underwater treasures of Gyaros propelled them to brave the winter chill in order to send a powerful message to world leaders in Paris, as well as anyone who thinks that climate change is just a theoretical threat that will only impact faraway lands.
