Coral Reefs

Simply put, a coral reef is a bar of rock, sand, coral, or other material lying beneath the surface of the water. But that’s just the beginning.

Coral Reefs are made up of tiny coral “polyps” that branch out and connect to each other. These polyps secrete calcium carbonate (limestone) which build these “rock-like substances.” Tiny polyps live inside the coral structures. When these tiny coral skeletons fuse (bind) together this ultimately creates the coral reefs.
