Caption: Aerial photograph of the coral reefs encircling lagoons in the centre of the large Ari Atoll. The Maldives sit on a volcanic mountain range that sank into the sea millions of years ago. The volcanic islands were settled by corals around the coasts. When the volcanoes became extinct, they were eroded by wind and water and disappeared under the sea. The corals however kept growing.
