Corals and Other Invertebrates

Oceans are home to a diverse assortment of corals, starfish, jellyfish, sea slugs, kelp and more. Corals are living creatures that often live in compact colonies and build up coral reefs, the biggest of which is the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Corals and other invertebrates face major threats from climate change and destructive fishing like dynamite fishing, bottom trawling and more.
