For three decades, researchers from the Coral Reef Foundation have been traversing tropical waters in search of something potentially life-saving — marine molecules.

These organisms have the natural ability to fend off disease, and scientists believe their make-up could prevent cancer in humans.

For this Geo Quiz, we want you to name the Indo-Pacific nation where scientists have been searching for these cancer-fighting molecules. Can you guess it?
