An international team scientists has discovered a huge coral reef the Amazon River. The team the universities Georgia the USA and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil was an expedition to learn more Amazon River plumes when it made the discovery. Plumes are the areas close where a river meets the sea and the river's freshwater mixes the saltwater the ocean. The reef system spans an area 5,800 square kilometres, stretching the coast of French Guiana to the rainforest of the Brazilian state of Maranhao. The finding has surprised marine biologists because reefs are rarely found large rivers as the water is usually too muddy and dark, and does not contain enough salt.

The scientists only explored 10 per cent the reef. They said there were many sponges, creatures and other marine life that had adapted life in the darker waters. They also recorded 73 species reef fish, many of them carnivorous. Researcher Dr. Patricia Yager enthused what she had seen. She said: "We brought the most amazing and colorful animals I have ever seen an expedition." Sadly, not all news about the reef is good. The whole area has been earmarked oil exploration. Dr Yager warned that: "From ocean acidification and ocean warming to plans offshore oil exploration right top of these new discoveries, the whole system is risk human impacts."
