Adopt a Coral Polyp

Help us build a bigger, better Reef Check community by adopting a Coral Polyp today! Hard corals are made up of many small individual polyps working together to build something bigger than themselves. Although these polyps may only be a few millimeters in size, they each help to construct a coral colony that in turn helps to create complex reef structures. The efforts of many working together have built some of the largest natural structures on earth.
