Coral reef habitats include a number of U.S. national parks, monuments, preserves, and historic sites. Together these federal spaces encompass hundreds of shoreline miles and thousands of marine water acres. In this gallery, Coral Reef, we represent two of these parks and islands with digitized maps made available in the University of Kentucky Libraries’ collection. Before launching into the maps, take a look at Charley Harper’s commissioned work, The Coral Reef: Virgin Islands National Park, Biscayne, Fort Jefferson and Buck Island Reef National Monument, to see the variety of marine life represented in these various parts of the United States.
