DID YOU KNOW?
A coral is a mineral, animal, and plant.
By one estimate, coral reefs provide economic goods and ecosystem services worth about $375 billion each year to millions of people through fisheries, tourism, shoreline protection, etc.
The world has lost 30 to 50 percent of its coral reefs already and without significant intervention, tropical reef ecosystems could face global extinction by the end of the century.
