It is the mightiest structure on earth built and regenerated by countess billions of the smallest and simplest member of the animal kingdom. Each animal – a coral larvae – instinctively seeks to protect itself by construction its own limestone cell within days of birth. soon the larva becomes a polyp. The ne polyps attach themselves to and grow upon the original coral, so expanding it. When they die they leave a honeycombed limestone structure upon which future generations will flourish. The result of this collective effort is this stupendous Reef which provides shelter and home for over 1,000 species of underwater creatures, the majority of wich proclaim their presence in a vivid adornment of colour.

The Hawksbill Turtle is now an endangered species due to disturbance of its nesting beaches and by egg collectors.
