Marine explorers have found a giant coral reef, in “pristine” condition, off the coast of Tahiti, French Polynesia.

The 3km (2-mile) coral reef sits at a depth of 30m (100ft) and is one of the hugest located at that depth, says the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which led the mission.

Dr Julian Barbiere, from Unesco, said there were likely considerably more of these ecosystems

“that we just don’t know about”.
