I am not aware that any scientist considers coral bleaching to be advantageous; bleaching indicates the death of symbiotic algae within the coral, leading to the death of the coral itself, leading to a greatly reduced oceanic biodiversity, which is a bad thing.
The important is people should be made aware of the coral reefs.
Hi my name is Mchilda. coral reef protect itself from breathing and other stafff too.
Coral is made of coral polyps, that live in shells as to protect themselves from predators.
A haven for coral fish and a shipping hazzard for any ships that are not aware of the reefs presence.
People should be made aware of importance of coral reefs. People should be warned not to extract coral reefs to be used as building material.

The Coral Hairstreak has large labial palps in order to protect itself. They may be found in Maryland and nectar on Orange Butterflyweeds.
The parrot fish is the only fish that 'eats' coral. They are not actually eating the coral itself, they want the algae that grows on it. they poop the coral sand out later.

a coral reef is a group of organisms. they are different shapes etc due to their environment. the coral itself is made by animals living within it!Refer to some of the links below
Well, the coral polyps have stinging nematocysts on them. When plankton is detected, they lash out, spear it and inject the poison into them. I hope this info was useful.
Actually, the corals are helpless. There is NO way that the coral can protect itself. It can't move so how would it hit or run?? Common sense.
This answer is to clarify the answer that was given: There are three types of coral reefs: fringing reef, barrier reefs and coral Atolls. Sea anemone attaches itself to coral but it is not coral(predatory animal) A sea sponge is a filter feeding animal and a sea fan is soft coral but not a coral reef. sea anemone, sea sponge, sea fan (This is the answer that was given first and it is not correct)
The main resource is the coral itself. Coral takes a very long time to grow, and people remove it to use as decorations and such. Coral reefs can become severely damaged this way. Many tourist guides are urging tourists to not purchase real coral from gift shops for this reason.
Coral snakes are relatively small snakes. They are tri-colors - yellow, red and black. The coral snake distinguishes itself from copycats, such as the king snake, by the coloration of the stripes. If the yellow stripes touch the red stripes the snake is a coral snake.
Most coral reef animals, making up the reef itself, are filter feeders and they eat the microorganisms that live in the water surrounding them.
