These locations are called spawning aggregations. She was driving as fast as she could through Elmore street- the longest road in Sydney. But, this will do no good unless something is done about the underlying problems. Given that there are many mysteries that surround coral reefs, including what they are and what animals live in and around them, we hope to provide you with the information necessary to demystify these underwater environments.

If successful, PIPA may serve as a model for the creation of marine protected areas in the developed world. The antiviral drugs Ara-A and AZT and the anticancer agent Ara-C, developed from extracts of sponges found on a Caribbean reef, were among the earliest modern medicines obtained from coral reefs. Some of the best mangroves in the world occur in the alluvial deltas of Ganga, Godavari, Krishna and Cauvery and in the islands of Andaman and Nicobar.

Mining, residual damage from nuclear testing, sewage discharge, and construction have impacted some reefs. When polyps are physically stressed, they contract into the calyx so that virtually no part is exposed above the skeletal platform. Koweek wondered if it might be possible to spur coral growth by reducing CO2 levels in the water in the predawn hours -- when the oceans are most acidic -- by using air bubbles to draw the gas out of the seawater and transfer it to the atmosphere.

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is the largest of its kind, covering an area bigger than the United Kingdom and including 2,900 separate reef formations and 300 reef islands, some 1,400 miles (2,250 km) long. In a 1999 article in the journal Marine and Freshwater Research, Michael Risk compares the response of the scientific community to the coral reef crisis with its response to two other crises affecting the United States: acid rain in the Northern Hemisphere and eutrophication of the Great Lakes.

Coral reefs today face an unintentional, but growing, threat from the very people who prize them most. We have discovered that there are companies working to create sunscreen and skin care products that will have minimal impact on aquatic life. Some of the most strange and interesting creatures in the world live here. A new study appearing Aug. 16 in Nature Communications takes this a step further, finding that in coral reefs where fishing occurs, nearly half of these key nutrients are absent from the ecosystem.

Reefs provide food, for example, lobster and conch. Acidification reduces the water’s carrying capacity for calcium carbonate that corals need to build their skeletons. The island nation is made up of some 115 tropical islands in the Indian Ocean. In the same way the algae provides the coral with oxygen. As the polyps multiply and grow over long periods of time, their skeletons form large masses of coral rock. In really shallow areas the water starts to smell because you're getting all of this rotting tissue on the surface.
