This is a relatively recent discovery, so maybe EPA can help raise awareness of this important issue.

Four chemicals commonly found in most sunscreen products (parabens, cinnamates, benzophenones, and camphor) can cause coral reef bleaching. Hopefully, you used an eco-friendly sunscreen that does not contain these chemicals. Otherwise, by slopping on all of that SPF you were probably damaging the very thing you were there to admire.
