On the reef crest types of coral can provide protection from strong storms and waves. This coral can also sting you if accidentally touched.
This coral can be found on the seaward side of the reef and looks more like moose antlers.
This explosive material is sometimes used on reefs to capture fish
This material in the water can smother a reef or decrease the amount of light needed for coral growth
Mooring buoys are placed in the water to prevent this
Anchoring on the reef
Extremely high temperature waters may cause this to happen to coral
The removal of herbivorous fish will result in the overgrowth of this
