Coral Reefs in the Balance, Part 2

On the tiny island of Jandayan in the Philippines, "lantern-divers" swim along the reefs at midnight to hunt for one of the world's most exotic animals, seahorses, to sell to aquarium-fish dealers.

NPR's Christopher Joyce reports in the second part of a National Geographic Radio Expeditions series.
