# Oceans are deep places.
# The average depth is 3800 metres, but in some places the seabed lies as deep as 11,000 metres.
# Below 1000 metres, absolutely no light can penetrate. So far from the Sun’s rays, this habitat is intensely cold, and there is bone-crushing pressure from the enormous weight of water above.
# Air pollution from carbon dioxide causes the oceans to become more acidic. This stops polyps, especially cold-water ones, from being able to grow their stony skeletons.
