Coral Bleaching

Coral Bleaching Coral bleaching is caused by global warming. Global warming causes the temperature of the sea water to rise, this causes the corals to become stressed. When the corals become stressed the organims that live within the coral move home because the relationship between the algae and the coral dies. When the organisms leave that cause the color to also leave the coral. If the water temp does not return to normal the coral with then die.Not only the coral is effected from global warming but also the whole eco system. * The fish that live in the coral leave to find a cooler climate* This cause the birds to leave to find food.
