Coral Reefs

coral reefDid you know  coral reefs are enormous ocean communities with millions of animals and sea plants that live in them? Potato cod, needle fish, box fish and octopus are some of the animals that live in a coral reef.

Some coral reefs grow on underwater mountains and volcanoes. Did you know that some of the coral reef’s polyps grow as long as one foot?

There are three kinds of coral reefs. They are barrier reefs, atolls and fringing reefs. Coal, oil and gas can harm coral reefs. When the water gets warmer, the reefs also get sick.
