Micro-Habitats
Throughout the years, man-made objects have been thrown into the lagoon and left there. As a result, many of those objects have become encrusted with algae, coral, and sponges thus providing homes to it's unique inhabitants. They now serve as a micro-habitat. Some of those habitats include shopping carts, sunken sailboat, glass bottles, and anchors.
