Is the water warm along the great barrier reef?

    Yes.  The living organism coral can only survive in warm water.  It’s sensitivity to water temperature is generally the reason why coral reefs are considered such a fragile ecosystem.  This is why coral reefs do not typically grow on the west coasts of Africa or America.  Coastal currents lend themselves toward colder water temperatures, creating conditions which are not ideal for supporting coral growth.  It is a fairly safe assumption that anywhere you find coral reefs growing, the water temperature will be warm.
