Corals of the World is a project that began with a five-year effort to put together what became a 3-volume hard copy encyclopaedia with photographs illustrating the global diversity of corals, published in 2000. Yet that massive task was just the beginning—obviously we needed an interactive on-line, updateable, open-access system that included two major components: Coral Geographic and Coral Id.

We only had two days left and the weather was closing in and getting stormy. We hadn’t gotten the footage we needed yet and our budget was becoming perilously exhausted. Our chances of capturing exciting footage of right whales off Peninsula Valdes in Argentina were diminishing by the hour.

A wide beach on a warm clear evening may be the most relaxing setting on earth. We weren’t likely to come across any nesting turtles on this beautiful evening in the far northwest corner of Nicaragua (the tides weren’t right), but we didn’t mind. The soft sound of surf provided a soundtrack for the brightest Milky Way I’ve seen in years. Just being out on the sand was enough entertainment. But we didn’t travel 10 hours by bus from El Salvador for a tranquil beach walk.

“We may have to walk a ways to see a sea turtle,” I told my daughter Karina as we stood on X’cacel beach, one of Mexico’s most important turtle nesting beaches, located near Playa del Carmen on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Each time I travel to New York I am struck – and often overwhelmed – by the towering buildings and bustling life.   Standing beneath a 300 m tall building or looking over its observation deck, the city can either be an urban jungle looming overhead or a twinkling toy city shining below.  Imagine jumping from the heights of New York City to the depths of the Grand Canyon, 1800 m down.
