Reef Facts:
Warm Water Reefs are found in the sub-tropical and tropical regions of the world and boast a temperature range between 20 and 29 degrees Centigrade. Coral Reefs are renowned for their brilliant and vivid ambience and are home to approximately 1 million species of animals in particular 4000 species of fish (1/4 of all known fish species.) Unfortunately, as a result of pollution and sedimentation from land-based sources, overfishing, and other factors, warm water reef ecologies have experienced a decline in the past decades but are gradually regenerating as a result of diligent conservation efforts.
