The Komodo National Park in Indonesia is home to one of the world's most well-preserved coral reefs. However, it is being destroyed by illegal fishing. More than 60 fishermen have been arrested for using explosives and poison to guarantee themselves a good catch. Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Komodo Island.
Coral reefs are the most biologically diverse habitats of the oceans and face extinction due to climate change by 2050. This video was released just ahead of the landmark 2009 Copenhagen summit on climate change in a bid to draw the world's attention to the plight of these fragile habitats. Sadly, the conference ended in failure -- and the future of coral reefs remains perilous.
