DID YOU KNOW: The Florida coral reef tract stretches more than 350 miles south from Martin County (Port St. Lucie) through the bottom of the Florida Keys, making it one the largest barrier reef ecosystems in the world, and the only one in the Continental United States - a national and global natural treasure, indeed!
