WhyReef - Lifestyle

Green seagrass is not very common on the reef, because there are usually not enough nutrients or space for it to grow. However, it does grow well in soft muddy or sandy areas near a reef, where many animals depend on it for food. It also provides a home for many small animals, and hiding places for young animals trying to escape from predators!
