Sea Facts:

In comparison to the vast volume of the oceans, coral reefs represent a tiny fraction of the substrate.  And yet approximately 1/4th of all marine life lives in proximity to reef systems.  Critical to the health of marine life, they are rapidly in decline throughout the world due to pollution and commercial destruction.
