Rare coral reef discovered near Tahiti is ‘like a work of art’, says diver

Updated: Jan 29, 2022

Published by UN News, January 20, 2022 – “One of the largest coral reefs in the world has been discovered by a UN-supported scientific mission off the coast of Tahiti. Announcing the stunning find on Thursday, UNESCO said that divers had explored large rose-shaped corals spanning some three kilometres, at depths of between 30 and 65 metres.”

The reef find is highly unusual because of its deep location, as the vast majority of the world’s known coral reefs only descend to around 25 meters. The reef is described as being in “pristine” condition by the divers that discovered the rose-like corals.
