Marine scientists have discovered a “remarkable” pristine coral reef deep off the coast of Tahiti in French Polynesia, Unesco, which led the mission, revealed Thursday.

While most coral reefs sit relatively close to the surface, the 3-kilometer stretch of pristine rose coral was found by scientists at a depth of between 30 to 65 meters below sea level, in the so-called twilight zone. EFE
