Scientists have discovered five beautiful coral reefs, which are in the form of a vast, 310 mile corridor in the Gulf of Mexico.

A team of researchers from the University of Veracruz, and Mexico’s National Institute of Technology, announced their findings about the water – Corazones, Pantepec, South, Piedras Altas and Los Gallos, and Camaronera – earlier this month.

Leonardo Ortiz Lozano, a researcher at the University of Veracruz, made the discovery along with his colleagues, Earther has been reported. As with the majority of these coral reef areas, the corridor provides a habitat for a wide variety of fuels and is an extremely bio-diverse eco-system.

Although it is currently not protected, and the scientists who found the course to be modified before it is being threatened by the oil and gas industry.

“We want the coral to be officially approved) to protect against the fossil fuel industry.”

The fishing industry, and the settling of the drain, pose a threat to the coral reefs, the researchers say. Even though she wants to build a new environmental protection to the reefs, as they do not want to destroy the fishers are the primary source of income.

“What’s the most important thing is that those sites are where hundreds of fishermen to get to their food and the work we do,” Ortiz told the Earther. “It is very important to protect these sites, but it is necessary to ensure that the fishing industry in the world.”

“We want the coral to be officially approved) to protect against the fossil fuel industry,” Ortiz told the Earther.

In addition to the pollution of the human being, climate change may also negatively impact coral reefs.

Scientists are studying the ways in which the biodiversity of the reefs can be enhanced in order to thrive in a hotter future.

“There is a lot of interest in the creation of a more tolerant corals, and with the help of genetic manipulation, and recovery of the reefs by targeting more resilient coral reefs,” Caroline Palmer, a visiting research fellow at the University of Plymouth, which is not connected to the newly-discovered coral reefs, said in a news release. “I fully support this approach, but believe to understand what drives the coral’s health is the key to our success.”
