MetadataShow full item record
Vibrant, abundant and teeming with life, this is how most divers and marine conservationists would describe Philippine's oceans and marine life. The country's coral reef area is so biodiverse that it is considered as the world's " Center of Marine Biodiversity." With a land area of 26,000 kilometers, and inhabited by 915 reef fish species and over 400 scleractinian or hard coral species, the Philippine coral reef is the 2nd largest in Southeast Asia.
