This island province boasts of 70 hectares of undistributed coral reefs, according to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Western Visayas. Coral reefs are marine ridges or mounds, which have formed as a result of the deposition of calcium carbonate organisms, predominantly corals. Often called "rainforests of the sea", they form some of the most diverse ecosystems of the planet. Regional Director Jim Sampulna of DENR said a team will be created to protect Guimar's coral reefs.
