It's not news that the oceans need our help. This holiday season, consider gifting a coral. Yeah, it might sound funny. It's not your typical sweater or candle. It's better though. Coral cools down the ocean temperature which makes more an ecosystem conducive to flourishing life.

Coral Reefs have the highest biodiversity of any ecosystem (including rainforests)
Photosynthesis in the ocean?
Plants in the ocean also turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. Coral reefs effectively perform photosynthesis at a rate higher than ANY land forests, all while providing a home for 25% of the ocean (& using only 1% of the ocean floor).
Adopt a coral. Give the gift of carbon to our oceans. Buy nothing.
Help push the boundaries of technology in ocean conservation.
