A recent deep-water expedition by the Schmidt Ocean Institute has discovered two pristine, cold-water Coral Reefs in the Galapagos Islands. These reefs, located over 1,000 feet below the surface, are thousands of years old and exhibit a rich diversity of stony coral species. The larger reef spans over 800 meters in length, while the smaller reef measures 250 meters. This discovery contributes valuable scientific data and highlights the importance of protecting these ecosystems in a constantly changing environment. The expedition also explored areas within the Isla del Coco National Marine Park in Costa Rica.
