Corals and sea anemones make up the class of aquatic animals called the anthozoans. The hard corals (the type that creates huge reefs) form the basis of certain marine ecosystems and are under threat of extinction due to the increasing acidity of oceans and the heating up of the water.
Acidification of the water is likely to dissolve aragonite, thereby not letting the hard corals grow. The only way is to curb our carbon emissions.
