Corals, Kingman Reef
Photograph by Brian Skerry, National Geographic

The remoteness of the Line Islands' Kingman Reef, which barely breaks the oceans surface, has kept it relatively unspoiled and removed from the overfishing and pollution affecting more easily reached locales. Within Kingmans massive lagoon, water quality is exceptional, allowing reef systems to thrive, and in every corner, wildlife teems. In the handful of places like this that remain, we can learn how coral reefs were meant to function, and create models for conservation elsewhere.

Washed by a mix of nutrient-rich currents, the temperate waters of central Japan hold a stunning array of wildlife. Swimming over the volcanic sands of Suruga Bay is like entering a fairy tale, with characters to be found around every turn and each dive like another chapter.
