Valkoinen looks stunning!

Valkoinen's very special treasures!


Warmer water temperatures can result in coral bleaching. When water is too warm, corals will expel the algae (zooxanthellae) living in their tissues causing the coral to turn completely white. This is called coral bleaching. When a coral bleaches, it is not dead. Corals can survive a bleaching event, but they are under more stress and are subject to mortality.

Mass coral reef bleaching events have become five times more common worldwide over the past 40 years, new research finds, with climate change playing a significant role in the rise.


Coral reefs are one of the most diverse habitats in the world. Despite covering just 0.1% of the ocean floor, reefs support around 25% of the world’s fish biodiversity.
Coral reefs are important for many different reasons aside from supposedly containing the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. They:

•protect coastlines from the damaging effects of wave action and tropical storms
•provide habitats and shelter for many marine organisms
•are the source of nitrogen and other essential nutrients for marine food chains
•assist in carbon and nitrogen fixing
•help with nutrient recycling.
