What did we learn in school today? Coral Reefs

February 5, 2017

Today we studied coral and coral reef barriers.  We learned that coral is a living organism and that it’s exoskeleton forms reef fences in warm waters.  Coral reef barriers are wonderful places for marine life.  We also learned they are popular places for scuba and snorkeling and that many people love to visit just for this.  We need to conserve our coral reef barriers by practicing conservation.  Did you know that jellyfish are also in the coral and sea anemone families?
