We have receive requests from divers from other countries to particiapte in the next #MesDelArrecife 2015 and already receiving your videos, photos and artistic representations related to coral reefs. 
* Because it is necessary to evidence the state of coral reefs. * Because it is relevant to multiply knowledge on how to improve the effectiveness of reef management* Because communities of artisanal fishermen and tourist operators are reporting their daily observations to inform the decision makers* Because by coral reef protection there is less pollution, less coral destruction and less overfishing* Because we need to remind the developers that true sustainable development is the protection of our ecosystems and ecotourism. Thus, future generations can enjoy what we inherit them.
