Since 1997, AGRRA and our partners have conducted over 3,000 surveys in 29 different countries or territories in the Greater Caribbean. In addition to the three better known reef types – fringing, barrier and atolls – together with our partners, we are continually finding new and different types of reefs and new species throughout the region. Explore the countries we work with listed below.
The Greater Caribbean extends from the Bahamas, Florida and Gulf of Mexico in the north through the Caribbean Sea to the south along the NE coast of South America; including the Greater and Lesser Antilles to the East and Central America to the west. Caribbean coral reefs have 65 stony coral species that provide homes to a diverse array of plants and animals, including nearly 700 reef fish species.
