The Oceans Garden: Coral Reefs (DC)

Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups.

We have so many bugs at Green School, and many of them are unique and exciting. In this course, you will document the bugs, learn more about their importance in the ecology of the area, and build a database for future Greenschooligans to explore.
