coral reefCoral reefs are the undersea equivalent of tropical forests.  Occupying less than 1% of the ocean floor they provide habitat for more than 25% of all marine life.  They are affected by a wide range of human caused problems including commercial fishing, the pet trade, pollution; intense hurricanes and a rise in water temperatures which are directly linked to global warming.  We are working to develop more creative public awareness campaigns to protect these undersea inhabitants and their homes.
