    During heat waves in 2014-2015, nearly half of Hawaii’s coral reefs bleached. Officials from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that 56 percent of the Big Island’s coral were bleached, along with 44 percent along West Maui and 32 percent around Oahu. Scientists predict that such bleaching events in Hawaii will become more frequent and severe, occurring in 30 to 50 percent of years in the 2030s.
