These Marine Scientists Are Finding Innovative Ways To Save The Coral Reefs

By Kristin Hunt

The news on coral reefs is far from rosy. Mass bleaching over the past two years has led to widespread death — according to one especially scary study, half of all the coral in the Great Barrier Reef has died since 2016.

Rising sea temperatures are the culprit, and that cannot be solved with a simple switch. But a few dedicated scientists have come up with inventive ways to beat back the tide of decaying and dying reefs. Could these methods yield real results? We’ll let the researchers explain in their own words.
