Greetings, Coral community,

There are still some amazing coral reefs left!
Check out this video (change to 4K) of the reefs on the Egyptian coast of the Red Sea from last month.


Nearly 100% coral cover, and some really massive coral heads.
No evidence of disease or bleaching, and notice the near absence of seaweeds and sponges compared to Caribbean reefs.
