The Great Barrier Reef Out in the Pacific Ocean, waves curl and break, crash and foam in a long line. The waves are striking a reef lying near the surface of the water. It is the Great Barrier Reef. It is the longest coral reef in the world. If it were placed beside the United States, it would stretch from Philadelphia to Miami. What is truly wonderful about a coral reef is the way it is made. The building begins with tiny animals called polyps. Polyps look like brightly colored flowers growing in an ocean garden. But they are a very simple form of animal life. Each little animal makes a coral cup around itself. The coral is hard like stone. The animal unfolds itself from the cup to feed. It folds into the cup for safety. When the animal dies, the hard cup remains. New polyps build their cups on top of the remaining cups. As more and more are added, the coral takes different shapes. In time, masses of coral form a reef.
Great Barrier Reef (continued) The reef is not safe from danger. Waves crash and beat at its edges. With each sweep of waves, bits of coral are carried away. Some kinds of fish feed on live polyps. When live polyps are killed, the reef breaks down. People also cause damage. They pollute the waters. They even tear pieces off of the beautiful coral. It has taken millions of years to build the Great Barrier Reef. Day by day, parts of it are destroyed. Day by day the building goes on.
