This Coral Reef hat is a special one. Snorkeling with Manta Rays and other diverse fish, underwater flora and fauna, is one of Katherine's favorite activities. When a Coral Reef is healthy, the colors will blow you away. This is the perfect item to throw on your head and because it's got a mesh back it will keep you cool in just about any activity, especially on the water. It will also keep your face protected from the sun or wind. Feel good about this purchase. Part of your hard-earned cash will help protect coral reefs and all the underwater life that makes the coral reef their home.
Did you know that coral reefs are basically giant skeletons? When tiny animals called polyps group together they form these massive structures that we call reefs, and that thousands of other species call home. Coral reefs can be found in tropical oceans, the largest of which is the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Some coral reefs on the planet began to growing over 50 million years ago. Sadly, due to the effects of climate change, coral reefs are dying at an alarming rate. Today almost half of the Great Barrier Reef has died from bleaching due to warmer water temps. We have to do something to slow down, and eventually stop this catastrophic trend, and it can all start now with your support.
