Green algae, Coral reef, Mu Ko Lanta Marine National Park, Thailand

Thailand’s Coral Reefs support 4,000 species of fish, 700 species of coral, thousands of plants and animals and are home to one in every four marine species. Thailand’s coral reefs also provide vital protection for shorelines against erosion, storm and wave damage. Approximately one quarter of the world’s coral reefs lie in Southeast Asian waters, and the Andaman Sea is home to the most diverse collection of marine life in the world. The coral reefs we see today in Thailand are the result of a process that started 240 million years ago and each reef forms a complete eco-system – the oldest and most productive eco-systems on earth.
