In honor of the underwater meeting that the Maldives' Cabinet held on Saturday to raise awareness about the threat of climate change, HuffPost Green thought a slideshow of the world's endangered coral reefs would be appropriate. October 24th is the International Day Of Climate Action where worldwide people will be bringing attention to the pressing concerns of climate change, such as the danger it poses to ecosystems like coral reefs.

Check out these beautiful reefs and pick your favorite image.
