The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Enormous ‘Twilight Zone’ coral reef discovered off the coast of Tahiti” – below is their description.
A “magical” coral reef stretching as far as the eye can see has been discovered off the coast of the South Pacific island Tahiti.
The beautiful reef took around 25 years to grow and was found in the “twilight zone”, where it is highly unusual to unearth such a find as there is barely enough light to sustain life.
“It was magical to witness giant, beautiful rose corals which stretch for as far as the eye can see. It was like a work of art,” said French photographer Alexis Rosenfeld, who led the team of international divers that made the discovery.
The acres of giant corals in pristine condition show no sign of being damaged by climate change and demonstrate just how little we know about the ocean, according to experts.
They say it shows the need to protect the world’s remaining healthy reefs from environmental damage.
