Photo by @BrianSkerry Coral Gardens - A shallow water view of a pristine coral reef located approximately 1000 miles south of Hawaii in a place called Kingman Reef. Because of their remoteness, ecosystems like this have remained largely unspoiled and by studying them we can understand how a healthy coral reef truly functions.
