In the framework of increasing its tourism inflow as well as promoting the nation as a prime oceanic holiday destination, Chinese authorities in late December announced that they are going to establish a monitoring database of cay ecology in line to international standards. Coral reefs, as most travellers and especially divers know, are of great value in safeguarding marine eco-balance, as well as protecting seacoasts and islands and developing tourism and oceanic fisheries. In such a context, officials launched the oceanic ecology station, which was built in Beihai city in south China<.>`s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region by China`s State Oceanic Administration. Cay, known as the ocean tropical rain forest, is one of the most important habitats for marine life, as well as seen as the most diversified eco-system in the world.
