Two incredible, little-known reefs:

What do pink dolphins and leafy sea dragons have in common? They both benefit from two amazingly unique and little-known reefs on opposite sides of the world. Despite their geographic differences, the Amazon Reef and the Great Southern Reef have some striking similarities.

Scientists estimate the Amazon Reef’s size could span 56,000 km2 near the mouth of the Amazon River. Not bad for a reef system that nobody expected to be there! Because of its unique nature, the critters that live amongst the Amazon Reef are very precious. Between 2010 and 2014, scientists undertook three surveys of the area, and they believe they have found new species of fish and sponges.
