Encompassing The Philippines to the north, Indonesia and Malaysia to the south and west, and The Solomon Islands to the east, the rich and incredibly bio-diverse marine waters of The Coral Triangle are home to over 75% the world's known coral species and habitat for more than 3,000 species of fish. While these underwater ecosystems seem vast, beautiful and healthy in photos, it is not hard to see the impacts of climate change and other human influences when you visit the same sites even just a couple of years apart.
