Why does coral washed up on beach get voted not recent?

Why does coral on beach get voted non recent even though coral does not presist 100 years before becoming sand?

Coral that washes up on the beach should be accepted as recent, unless there’s a good reason to think it’s very old. I think somebody is making a mistake.

In certain places, coral is fossilized and could wash up after being exposed. In many places, coral is also “returned” to the beach, so someone may have just marked the wrong DQA box.

Is cancun, Mexico one of these places?

I’m not sure. You can always click on the number next to the DQA vote to see who voted that way. Then you can comment and ask them why.
