Rigs to Reefs: Towers of Life

CORPUS CHRISTI - If you've never dived on an oil rig out in the Gulf of Mexico it's hard to imagine the incredible variety of life they support.

Even after a rig no longer produces oil or gas, one can still generate billions of dollars in economic activity every year and help create thousands of jobs.

Despite that fact many of the rigs could disappear within a decade. Efforts to prevent that from happening are the subject of a new documentary by the Gulf of Mexico Foundation which is based here in Corpus Christi.

It's a fascinating story with some incredible video. Lee Sausley has the story.
