This Eerie Neon Glow Coming From Bleached Coral Could Actually Be Good News

Six years ago, during a global coral bleaching event and after the Port of Miami was dredged, endangered corals on Florida's coral reef began rapidly wasting away and dying. Their "mystery killer" is referred to as the "Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease" (SCTLD). In response, scientists launched an unprecedented rescue effort to save the corals.

Not all corals respond to bleaching events by turning ghostly white, with some instead becoming shimmering arrays of bright neon colors. The authors of a new study believe this is an attempt to lure the much-needed algae back home.One of the ways coral reacts to abnormal sea temperatures is by expelling tiny algae that lives in its tissues, a process that drives the type of bleaching events that have devastated Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in recent years. But not all corals respond by turning ghostly white, with some instead becoming shimmering arrays of bright neon colors. The authors of a new study believe this is an attempt to lure the much-needed algae back home.

Colorful corals may be calling crucial algae back home
