This morning, Hary wakes up with the moon. He and his 13-year-old son are hoping it will guide fish into their nets.

今天早上,哈里伴随清晨的阳光起床了。他和13岁的儿子希望能利用渔网钓到鱼。

HARY, NOSY ANDRAGNAMBALA, MADAGASCAR (translated): This is how I make a living, through this net.

这就是我如何利用渔网来谋生的。

SUTTER: Today, they're in luck. A few fish. But they say their catches are just a fraction of what they once were, and that's because the coral reef that surrounds this remote island off the coast of Madagascar is disappearing and no one here understands why.

今天,他们非常的幸运。捕到了一些鱼。但是,他们表示这些量只是之前的一小部分。这是因为围绕马达加斯加的大珊瑚礁正在消失,没有人理解其中的原因。

This is Nosy Andragnambala, a tiny fishing community off the coast of East Africa. It's home to only a few dozen people, and among them are Hary and Lydia, who are raising six children.

这里是Nosy Andragnambala,东非海岸附近的一个小渔村。这里只居住了几户人家,其中就有哈里和莉迪亚,他们有六个孩子。

This family knows this reef better than anyone. And until recently, they never saw coral this damaged. Extreme heat this year has caused coral all around the world to start to suffocate and turned ghostly white. The aftermath looks like a disaster zone, or the ruins of an ancient city. No one here can make sense of it.

这个家庭比任何人都了解珊瑚。在这之前,他们从没有见到珊瑚受损。今年的酷热天气导致全球各地的珊瑚窒息,同时珊瑚开始白化。这看起来向一个灾后区,或者一个古城的遗址。这里的人都不理解其中的原因。

Scientists do know what's going on. Divers survey these waters during a heat wave in April, and they say that about 70 percent of their reef here was damaged by the high temperatures.

但是科学家知道发生了什么。潜水员调查了四月份这些水域的热效应。科学家表示70%的珊瑚因为高温受损。

The family's response to the vanishing coral, work harder. Hary and his sons cast lines deep into the ocean while Lydia walks the reef flats in search for octopus.

对于消失的珊瑚,这些家庭的反应只能是更加努力的工作。在莉迪亚在礁坪寻找章鱼的时候,哈里和他的儿子深入海洋捕鱼。

These skills are passed between generations. Hary and Lydia are Vezo, and that name means "at struggle with the sea". It's hard to imagine people who are more connected to the water.

这些技能是代代相传的。哈里和莉迪亚是Vezo, Vezo这个名字意味着“与大海作斗争”。这些人是与大海关系最近的人。

There's no fresh water, electricity or school out here. There's no plan B. It's too expensive for Hary and Lydia to give their kids an education off the island. So, the kids simply must learn to fish and sail.

这里没有淡水、电和学校。同时也没有其他的计划。让自己的孩子去岛外的地方上学需要支付昂贵的费用。所以这些孩子就必须学习钓鱼和航海。

It's a life many here would never trade and its one that brings plenty of joy to Harry, Lydia and their family.

这里的生活永远没有哦交易,同时给哈里、莉迪亚和他们的家庭带来了许多的快乐。

SUTTER: This song is about their love for the reef and their efforts to protect it.

这个歌声包含了他们对珊瑚的爱以及他们想要保护珊瑚的决心。

This morning, Hary wakes up with the moon. He and his 13-year-old son are hoping it will guide fish into their nets.
