The Underwater Coral City

1. Coral reefs are warm, clear, shallow ocean habitats that are rich in life. The reef’s massive structure is formed from coral polyps, tiny animals that live in colonies. When coral polyps die, they leave behind a hard, stony, branching structure made of limestone.

2. There are two types of corals, hard corals and soft corals. Hard corals (like brain coral and elkhorn coral) have hard, limestone skeletons which form the basis of coral reefs. Soft corals (like sea fingers and seawhips) do not build reefs.

3. Coral reefs develop in shallow, warm water, usually near land, and mostly in the tropics; corals prefer temperatures between 70 and 85°F (21-30°C). There are coral reefs off the eastern coast of Africa, off the southern coast of India, in the Red Sea, and off the coasts of northeast and northwest Australia and on to Polynesia. There are also coral reefs off the coast of Florida, USA, to the Caribbean, and down to Brazil.

4. The Great Barrier Reef (off the coast of NE Australia) is the largest coral reef in the World. It is over 1,257 miles (2000 km) long.

5. Many coral reefs are dying. Major threats to coral reefs are water pollution (from sewage and agricultural runoff), dredging off the coast, careless collecting of coral specimens, and sedimentation, (when silt or sand from construction or mining projects muddies the waters of a reef and kills corals, which need light to live).

6. The under water coral city is a unique and diverse collection of colourful and weirdly patterned animals. This city is planned by tiny architects who have devised an inter-related web of large and complex structures, intricate waste disposal system, even its own water conditioning plant.
