Rising abruptly out of the ocean bed and teeming with colorful life, coral reefs are some of the most amazing natural sights on earth — truly, there’s nothing else quite like them. Occupying less than a tenth of 1% of the earth’s surface, they are home to more than 25% of all marine species, and are always surrounded by swarm-like schools of fish and alive with crustaceans, mollusks and sponges. Today pollution, disease and overfishing are all hitting coral reefs hard, and many face a precarious future. However, while mankind might be pushing many of the coral reefs around the world to the point of destruction, we have also been responsible for creating new ones, whether by design or by accident! Indeed, whenever new shapes arrive in the depths, coral will gradually begin to collect, bringing with it a flowering miniature ecosystem. Here are seven such artificial reefs shaped from the wrecks of vehicles, each of which has become a truly spectacular underwater environment!
