Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Photo of the Day Tuesday 7th May 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….”  Keep smiling, it makes people wonder what you have been up to”

” I am going to stop putting things off, starting tomorrow”.

Coral is made up of small polyps, which are soft bodied organisms that are related to sea anenomens and to jellyfish.  They live in shallow, warm waters, and get most of their food from the algae that grow on them.  They also have tentacles that can catch plankton and very small fish.   Due to pollution and global warming, an estimated 25% of coral reefs worldwide have disappeared.  The longest coral reef in the world is the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the second longest lies off the coast of Belize.   The photo today shows an aerial view of some of the coral off the Yasawa Islands in Fiji.   Parts of the coral reefs around Fiji have been suffering from bleaching, which is when the rise in sea temperatures kills off the algae that lives on the coral.  For the time being, it remains a divers paradise though.
