Description:

Coral reefs are more critical to an ocean’s health than you might think, and the effects of climate change and ocean acidification are effectively damaging and destroying most reefs in the world. Coral reefs provide many important ecosystem services, including: providing food, shelter, and meeting places for thousands of animals; anchoring sand for recreational beaches; and supplying building materials for remote peoples.
