Where Are Coral Reefs Found?
Coral reefs are found in seas with
warm, clear, and shallow water. These
waters are often found on eastern shores
of continents with oceans that have
portions in the tropics. Corals that build
reefs need these conditions because they
need the algae to grow. The waters must
be clear and shallow because the algae
needs lots of sunlight to grow.
This is a picture of a scuba-diver in a coral reef. Coral reefs only thrive in warm clear ocean
waters.
