Name: Anthazoa sp. Size: various Lifespan: Coral colonies can live for 4000 years, but single polyps have a much smaller life-cycle and vary from species to species

WHERE THEY HANG ? Snorkel beautiful fringing reef straight off the beach at Horseshoe, Murray & Rose Bay in Bowen - or discover exposed coral without swimming on super low tides around North Head Island and Dalyrmple Point.

SUPER COOL FACTS ? Corals are animals, not plants, and their colours are formed by the algae that live within them and provide them with food. See how many types you can count!

LEAVE NO FOOTPRINTS ? If you are exploring the shoreline at low tide take care not to step on exposed coral!
