[Ecosystem] Cold Water Corals

One of the most startling discoveries has been the abundance of coral reefs, living hundreds of metres below the surface of the sea, at around 4 to 13 degrees centigrade. Whats more, many of these reefs seem to play a significant role in the health of sea life in the area, and harbor an incredible diversity of life.

    Did you know that the use of sunblock is banned in Hawaii in the ocean because it has a bleaching effect on the coral!

    They are so beautiful
    I just love the science of corals...I can't believe that they are created by animals
    We should conserve our environment and stop disrupting the corals
    and their marine environment

    we should take this as a warning that we are really killing corals every time we pollute the ocean. if you think this is nice or that corals are nice, should i ask you why and would you answer?
