While it is well known that the coral reefs are at risk, many do not understand why. The Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea near Australia and the New Caledonia Barrier Reef located near New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean are the notable examples of Coral Reef across the world. Of these, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest one and is an approximate 2500 km in length. The reef-building corals of the world are essential to both humans and many species of marine flora and fauna. Humans depend on the coral reefs as a source of fish. Fishing in the coral reefs supports the livelihood of thousands of people across the world. Coral reefs also protect coasts from damage by waves and winds. It is estimated that around 500 million people globally depend on the coral reefs for their livelihood. Coral reefs also indicate the health of the global ecosystem. Unfortunately, despite their significance to humans and other life forms on earth, human activities are damaging coral reefs across the world. UNEP-WCMC delivers analysis and interpretation of data and information about biodiversity, in engaging and accessible ways. Main World Atlas of Coral Reefs. World Atlas of Coral Reefs Mark D.
