S160: Coral Reefs - the Rainforests of the Ocean in Splash! Fall 2008 (Oct. 18, 2008)
Have you ever thought about how rich the ocean is with life? Have you ever been to or seen a postcard of those picture-perfect tropical beaches surrounded by coral reefs? Coral reefs are the most diverse and perhaps the most beautiful areas of the ocean. In this class we'll talk about what makes a coral reef, what plants and animals live there, how do coral reefs respond to climate change and how long they can live. We'll see lots of pictures and video, play a game, and hear about cool things people can do to study the ocean and life on coral reefs.
