This Robot Just Delivered 100,000 Baby Corals to the Great Barrier Reef

By Carly Sitzer

The Great Barrier Reef has seen better days; in 2016 and 2017, the coral that made up around half of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef died off due to the effects of the constantly changing climate and the emissions of greenhouse gases in our environment. 


The Reef is home to countless species, who are rapidly losing their home despite the best efforts by scientists to intervene and save the Great Barrier Reef. And the latest update could be one of the promising for the 1,400 miles of colorful corals. Researchers at two different universities in Australia recently rolled out an underwater robot designed to repopulate the reef.
