Sea and Corals literally popped into my mind as I was wondering what to write about today. It pleases me because I feel so often that my posts to date are filler for information that is on everyone else’s sites and I have to play ‘catch up’. So, here I go with my research and curation of facts and images about sea and corals. You may click on any of the images to see their source.

The Effect on Humans

The effect of sea and corals on the human mind and our overall well-being is one of elated harmony. The ions that sweep in off the ocean are a part of each little participant in the largeness of the watery kingdom. When we surround ourselves with items from the sea or even the simple suggestion of the ocean in meditation brings a whole body response as if we are there.

How Do They Grow?

A post that includes corals must give an explanation of their origin. In other words, how do they grow?

“Coral reefs are formed when free-swimming coral larvae attach to submerged rocks or other hard surfaces along the edges of islands or continents. As the corals grow and expand, reefs take on one of three major characteristic structures — fringing, barrier, or atoll.” —Via NOAA

The Peril of the Great Barrier Reef

The world of the coral supports a ginormous, busy environment of creatures. Do you know that the Great Barrier Reef of Australia is one of the 7 wonders of the world? In addition, it is the largest living structure on earth. And talk about size – it is so big that it’s easily viewed from space. On top of all that, it is the world’s largest coral reef stretching 2,300 kilometers along the Queensland coastline and covering an area of 344,400 square kilometers.

Sir David Attenborough said of the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, “It is one of the greatest and most splendid natural treasures that the world possesses.”

In my research for this post, I am saddened to learn that the Great Barrier Reef is in danger due to environmental damage.
