This Entacmaea quadricolor in the Red Sea has been reduced to no color due to climate change and pollution globally. This is what they can look like:
Elevated sea temperatures have caused the loss of an algae (zooxanthellae - Symbiodinium) which usually lives symbiotically in the anemone’s tissue. Along with the loss of photosynthetic pigments, the absence of algae makes the anemone appear pale and ‘bleached’. This photo was shot during a research cruise documenting devastating post-bleaching coral mortality in the Farasan Banks in the Red Sea, Saudi Arabia.
