SYDNEY • Scientists have started the biggest effort to regenerate coral on Reef Mòr in danger with millions of creatures' eggs and cut sperm while they are. spawn each year.
The researchers said yesterday that they are expecting to grow a coral larvae from the eggs that are going to grow; harvested and returned to areas of the rock that were severely damaged by bleaching coral.
"This is the first time that the entire process of massive attack and larvae cultivation will be done directly on reefs on the Great Barrier Reef," said Professor Peter Harrison from Cross Cross University, one of the project leaders.
"Our team will restore hundreds of square meters with the aim of getting square kilometers in the future, an unprecedented scale," he said in a statement.
The "Larval Reform Project" was launched at the same time as the annual coral reefing on the reef, which started earlier this week and lasting only 48 to 72 hours hours.
Corals that are up to & # 39; Most 2,300 kilometer reef killed by sea temperatures rising to climate change, leaving left behind a bone renal in a process called coral bleaching.
Prof. Harrison warned that the project will not be sufficiently refurbished to save the reef. "Climate action is the only way to ensure coral reefs survive for the future," he said.
The researchers, which also include experts from the James Cook University and the University of Sydney Technology (UTS), said they were modernistic of their project. Coral larvae grows with microscopic algae. The two people live in a simbiosis on the rock.
In Indonesia, over a third of the country's coral reefs are in a bad state, scientists from the Institute of Indigenous Sciences said Tuesday. The beautiful state of the coral reefs was published after a 1067 site survey over the abrasive country of more than 17,000 islands.
