Exploring the Coral Reefs

Exploring the Coral Reefs takes you on an adventure through the coral reef while learning about how the coral reef works and how all the animals work together to make the ecosystem. The video is engaging and hooks viewers from the start. Coral is built by polyps. Polyps are small creatures that are related to jellyfish. Unlike jellyfish, polyps are stationary. Hard coral create a limestone rock that they continue to build themselves upon. It takes hundreds of years to create coral reefs. The video also shares about endangered animals that are found in the coral reefs.

Exploring the Coral Reefs helped me answer my guiding questions by allowing me to see the actual coral reef ecosystem working together. I was able to see coral in their natural habitat and to see animals on the reef.  The video was full of color and the language was very understandable.
