Posted on: Sun 2 Dec 2018
Marine scientists are working on the largest and most complicated coral regeneration attempt ever undertaken on the Great Barrier Reef. This unprecedented new project could help save dying coral reefs across the globe.
Researchers have been collecting millions of coral eggs and sperm during this week’s annual coral spawning event on the reef in the first step of the ambitious project.
To find out more about the project Barometer’s Des Lawrence spoke to Professor Peter Harrison, Director of the Marine Ecology Research Centre at the Southern Cross University.
