CORAL REEF REPORT EXPLORES THE MYSTERY OF THE CORAL REEF
Berkeley, CA- Coral Reef Report has been launched to celebrate the
mystery of the planet's coral reefs.
This is the very first online magazine to explore the beauty of coral
through the personal stories, photographs, and art of people who have
dedicated their lives to protecting this magical underwater world.
"The more I learned about the daily destruction of the world's coral
systems, the more discouraged I became", Coral Reef Report creator
Watts explains, "But right in the middle of all of this tragedy is a
of really inspiring people who have a very personal connection with
ecosystems. I found that I learned more about the reef by trying to see
through their eyes and their experiences."
The Coral Reef Report features articles, personal stories, and audio
interviews with notables such as Pulitzer Prize nominee, Osha Gray
Pew Fellow Dr. Rod Fujita, and Marine Scientist and
for the National Geographic Society, Dr. Sylvia Earle. The site also
features a rotating photo gallery currently featuring award winning
photographer Linda Cline. In celebration of the first issue, jazz
Ottmar Liebert has generously donated an electric guitar as the grand
for the Coral Reef Buddy raffle. The proceeds from the raffle will help
a ranger training program at Bonaire National Marine Park in the
Donovan Watts, a certified diver, lives in Berkeley, California, where
works as a web consultant for the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL).
