Pristine Coral Reef found during the Pitcairn Islands ExpeditionPosted on Thursday, March 29th, 2012 at 12:12 pm by Paul
In a short post in the Explores Journal, Enric Sala of Nation Geographic tells of a pristine reef found during a four day dive expedition in the Ducie Atoll. Enric briefly describes the reef stating it contains up to 90% live coral cover and a very large biomass of fish. He also noted a healthy abundance of predator fish like sharks, groupers and jacks. It’s nice to finally read something with a positive twist. Enric’s post expressed the dire need to protect these reefs as they are found. The post can be found on the National Geographic Newswatch site.
