Coral odyssea



Have you ever seen the animals that build coral reefs?
All these little mouths surrounded by tentacles are coral polyps, of various shapes and sizes.
Some range from 3mm to 60mm in diameter.
What you see through a diving mask are colonies, formed by clones of polyps.
These colours are natural.
But this amazing underwater world is suffering from impacts of climate change…
Thank you to Pete West, Daniel Stoupin and the BioQuest team for revealing the true beauty of corals, as they have never been seen before.
