US$3.5 billion

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has assessed the value of the coral reefs found in the Bay Islands of Honduras at US$3.5 billion.

Don't know how they came up with that figure, but it seems rather low to me... I'd say our beautiful, healthy reefs are more in the neighborhood of priceless.
