Coral Reefs are Actually Translucent Animals
Hi Kids! Bloorb here. Checking in with an interesting fact from my recent flyby over the Ryukuyu archipelago in Southwest Japan. Did you know that coral reefs are actually translucent (see-through) animals? Reefs get their wild colors from millions of different algae that live in the reefs. *Alert! High Contamination Reading* When stressed by climate change or pollution, corals will eject the algae causing coral bleaching that can kill the colony. Help the Green Bean Team save the reefs!
