Coral reefs are biological treasures of the ocean. More varieties of plants and animals live on coal reefs than in any other ocean habitat. At least 350 million people and a quarter of all ocean life depend on coral reefs for their food and livelihood.
Reef Check is an international non-profit organization dedicated to bringing coral reefs back to health and keeping them that way.
Ocean Explorer is a certified member and supports Reef Check with its monitoring work in their research destinations.
