Fight to save Mexico reefs

Property development threatens to disrupt efforts to protect marine reserves in the country.

    Mexico will be playing host to the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun beginning on Monday.

    The country meanwhile is wrestling with its own environmental challenges.

    An ancient coral reef off Mexico's coast is at the centre of a dispute between locals, and a company seeking to build a huge tourist development.
