SYNOPSIS “Join us on a journey through the Coral Triangle and its magnificent coral reefs. These underwater gardens have the largest biodiversity of life on Earth and can only be compared to tropical rainforests.

Our oceans and its reefs must be protected now for the benefit of future generations and the health of our blue planet.
