Transcript of Ecosystems-Coral Reefs

The Great Barrier Reef The Fringing Reef The Atoll Reef About the Reef The Great Barrier reef is the world's largest and the prettiest coral reef. This reef contains an abundance of marine life. The great barrier reef is seperated into islands. You have a choice of over 100 islands to go to.They are so enchanting. You can also locate it in any of these places, Cairns (a city), Hampton (another city), and Towns ville (a capital). Ecosystems - Coral Reefs By : Angela Baldovinos,
and Jennifer Venegas YOU CAN EVEN SEE IT FROM OUTER SPACE !!! Climate In the summer the climate is 24 to 33 degrees Celsius and in the winter it is 14 to 26 degrees. Since this reef has a wet tropic climate, it only has 2 seasons (the green and the dry). The green season stretches from the first of the monsoonal rains. This season starts in November and ends in May.
The region has over 300 days of sunshine per year. So when people want to swim they must make sure they pack sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, unless they want a really bad suntan. :) The animals that we're about to name are just some and not all. We are pretty sure that there are more.
Some animals that are located here are tiny gobies, tusk fish, potato cod, cartilaginous fish, manta rays, tiger sharks, whale sharks, blennies, butterfly fish, trigger fish, cow fish, puffer fish, angelfish, anemone fish, coral trout, seahorses, sea perch, sole, scorpion fish, hawk fish and surgeon fish. Fringing Reefs are coral reefs that are connected to the mainland or continental islands.

It's inner parts are flat and covered with sand. However, it's outer edge is where corals start living on. It's Parts... The Fringing Reef More About the Fringing Reef Where It's Located... Fringing reefs are along shorelines and continents commonly found in Hawaii and the Carribean. It's Visitors... The Fringing Reef is the most commonly visited by people. But, people don't like the fact that it has low tides. So, why is it the most visited? Maybe because it's so amazing! An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef. An atoll surrounds a body of water called a "lagoon". Sometimes, atolls and lagoons protect a central island.
What's Inside an Atoll Reef? More About the Atoll Reef Inside an atoll, tiny animals called corals begin to build a reef around an island. The type of reef is called a "hard coral." That is what makes it a reef. Climate... The atoll's climate is tropical, but dry. It has winds from the northeast that trade with little temperature variation. The Atoll Reef's real name is the Johnston Atoll!! Fun Facts! There are more than 2,000 coral reefs in the whole world!! Did you know that algae keeps live corals and dead corals stuck together? Did you know that if you cut yourself with a coral and you don't clean it, the coral will grow on your skin? ANIMALS THANK YOU !!!!!!!
FOR WATCHING:) WHAT WE LEARNED....... While we were making this prezi, we learned a lot of things that we didnt know before. The main thing we learned more about was coral reefs, and how they're the same and different.
At first we thought that they were just all sand, coral, and fish. Now we know that they're not. We also learned that they're several reefs and not only one.
Another thing that we learned was that you can see The Great Barrier Reef from outer space. Also that the Fringe Reef is made up of little volcanos that form under the water. Also we learned that the Atoll Reef has the shape of a ring. The last thing we thought was amazing, was that the great barrier reef, is one of the natural seven wonders of the world.
