A coral reef isn’t a “thing”, but a living community! There are more fish living in two acres of a coral reef than there are kinds of birds in ALL of North America! Even though the base corals seem stationary and cannot move around a lot, it is living as well! When removed from the water, it dries up and has a hard outer shell. That is the shell of an animal called a polyp. These clusters of polyps are the base corals that give coral reefs their iconic shapes!
