reefsIn today’s day and age, there is not much we cant do from behind our computer screens. You can see the whole world at the stroke of a key. Now you can see the underwater world as well. Google Street View allows you to go all over the world, from the comfort of your couch. You can now see some of the most amazing coral reefs in the world. Recently, they added 40 new locations. Google Maps has joined forces with XL Catlin Seaview Survey, NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries and the Chagos Conservation Trust to release Street View imagery of more than 40 underwater spots around the World. Divers take SVII cameras on their dives to catch just amazingly breathtaking footage. Some of the locations you can watch include  Bali, the Cook Islands, the Bahamas and the Great Barrier Reefs. Google is focused on conservation and awareness.By adding imagery which shows the state and health of our coral reefs now, we can be more aware of the devastating effect of human impact, like global warming, climate change, over fishing and pollution, just to name a few, on our reefs.  MORE
