Descrição

Coral reefs and associated ecosystems (such as mangroves and seagrasses) are some of the world’s most biodiverse marine ecosystems, home to a significant proportion of the world’s known marine species. These ecosystems not only have a high ecological value, but are also of critical socio-economic importance, providing essential services such as buffering against storm surge, stabilizing coastal and nearshore areas against erosion, serving as nursery habitats for commercially important fish species and supporting livelihoods and economic activities, such as tourism and fishing.
