Beautiful Coral Reefs and Marine Life Pictures

Often called “rainforests of the sea”, coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface, yet they provide a home for 25% of all marine species. A large proportion of all life on Earth exists in the oceans. Marine life is a vast resource, providing food, medicine, and raw materials, in addition to helping to support recreation and tourism all over the world. [source: wikipedia]
