UNESCO announced on Thursday that scientists have discovered vast rocks of rose-shaped coral reefs in deep water off the coast of Tahiti, which have not been affected by climate change.
Mapping about three kilometers (two miles) long and 65 meters (213 feet) wide, UNESCO said it was “one of the most extensive healthy coral reefs on record.”
The invention was made by divers in November with special equipment that allows them to dive deeper and spend 200 hours on the rocks.
The UN Heritage Institute said it was very unusual to have healthy corals in cold water at depths of 30 to 65 meters, pointing out that there may be more reefs in a safe environment found in deep warm water at sea.
French photographer and UNESCO partner, for rocks, “It was magical to see the beautiful rose corals that stretched as far as the eye could see. It was a work of art.” Used expressions.
Audrey Azole, Director-General of UNESCO, “Now we know the surface of the moon better than the deep sea.” He added that only 20 percent of the world’s oceans are mapped.
