    Japan has reported an alarming rate of death in its largest coral reef. 

    The environment ministry says that 70 percent of the coral at Sekiseishoko, off Okinawa, is dead.

    91.4 percent of the coral in the largest reef in the Northern Hemisphere has also been bleached due to warm temperatures — meaning they're vulnerable and very likely to die, as well.

    Photo taken Sept. 12, 2016 from a drone shows Japan's largest coral reef, Sekiseishoko, between Ishigaki and Iriomote islands in the southernmost prefecture of Okinawa.
