  Hmm, I guess the argument could legitimately be made that ALL coral 
reef conservationists are "unsung" except maybe the Cousteau family!  
So, I'd be happy to receive ANY sketches with photos (see below) on work 
done around the world, if you'd like to send them.  Remember that this 
will be exhibited during the International Year of the Reef, so it would 
be nice to receive representative pieces from all oceans.
