Climate Change, Ocean Acidification & Cold-Water Corals.

My Pink Heart is about love and about treasuring our beautiful planet. By revealing the unseen beauty of little known cold-water corals, we hope to inspire you to celebrate, to love, and to further understand these impressive organisms and the rich ecosystem they support. 

"The more that is being discovered, the more we realise how precious and diverse, and important, and endangered these corals are." Sir David Attenborough

Inspiration

We collaborated with Prof Murray Roberts and his team at the Changing Oceans research group, The University of Edinburgh, to create this design using science imagery and bring this fascinating marine science story to you.

Scientific Story

When we hear the word coral, most of us think of rich and colourful tropical coral reefs in the shallow seas of the Caribbean, Australia or the Pacific. But did you know that over half of all living coral species known today grow in the cold dark deep ocean around the world?

Cold-water corals form fascinating reef structures made of living coral on top and dead coral beneath, which accumulates over time. These dead coral skeletons are critical and rich habitats (homes) for many species but, because they are no longer covered in living coral tissue, they are also the most vulnerable to ocean acidification.

Increased porosity will make the vulnerable sections of these coral reef structures fragile and simpler to a point where the reef systems will start to crumble and even collapse.

Cold-water coral ecosystems are found all around the globe and can take many thousands or even millions of years to form. Rapid climate change and the resulting increase in ocean acidification threaten to cause an extinction crisis on a vast global scale.

Geologists have related many previous marine mass extinctions to disturbance in the ocean’s carbonate chemistry – but the rates of change we are seeing now are very much faster than in the past. The stability of these precious reef structures and changes at the depth at which the corals can retain mineralisation will cause a massive change in habitat distribution. Areas that have been optimal for coral growth for thousands of years will become unsuitable within a few decades.

Positive Impact

Each scarf its paired with its written ocean literacy story, sharing the science and images that inspired the collection. 

We give back 10% of our profits to support important environmental research and our community engagement activities. 

By wearing your scarf and sharing the story, you are now part of the ocean advocacy movement, educating, inspiring others around you and helping communicate and fund important environmental science.
