The name Coral is inspired by the extremely beautiful Coral Reefs. Coral Reefs form underwater in large oceans. These are the solidified calcium carbonate secretions of Coral. Corals are colonies of tiny living animals found in marine waters containing few nutrients.
Often called “rainforests of the sea”, coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. They occupy less than one tenth of one percent of the world ocean surface, about half the area of France, yet they provide a home for twenty five percent of all marine species, including fish, mollusks, echinoderms and sponges.
