World Resources Institute has created an excellent short video that explains what are coral reefs , and precisely why they’re so important, and the dangers we’re posing to their health.
It’s an amazing introduction towards the variety of issues facing coral reefs and also the range of solutions we have at our fingertips. It’s ideal for school kids, every teacher could take this video tutorial up as a tool for instructing children on ocean biology, environmental issues, and social activism.
For those who have anyone in your life who it’s yet aware of the significance of coral reefs and how they can help, this short is an superb discussion starter.


Lady Musgrave Island (Great Barrier Reef) , Australia

Lady Musgrave Island is a 14 hectares (35 acres) coral cay on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, with a 1,192 hectares (2,950 acres) surrounding reef. The island is the second island in the Great Barrier Reef chain of islands (with the first being Lady Elliot Island), and is most easily reached from the town of 1770, Queensland, located on approximately 5 hours north of Brisbane. It is named for the wife of Sir Anthony Musgrave, a colonial governor of Queensland. Lady Musgrave Island, and the immediate surrounds, is a national park and can be reached by excursion boat from the Town of 1770. It is also part of the Capricornia Cays Important Bird Area.
