Visit the "save the reef" Internet Art Auction! 

As an event leading up to the "International Year of the Reef" (1997), the 
Coral Reef Research Institute (CRRI) is running an Internet art auction. 
This event begins August 15th and runs for two weeks at   At this site you can visit a gallery of over 
50 works of art by internationally acclaimed artists.   A novel program 
allows you to bid for art at the site. 

The aim of this art auction is to bring awareness of the challenges that 
face coral reefs world-wide.   It will also function to pursue crucial 
support for One Tree Island research station which is currently being 
threatened with closure by reduced institutional funding.   The loss of One 
Tree Island (the site of projects like ENCORE) would be a huge blow to coral 
reef research and conservation.
