Fertility treatments on corals? Researchers at @southerncrossuni are testing an experimental treatment called “coral IVF” and it’s working 🐠🙌 In two test sites at the Great Barrier Reef, researchers found that putting millions of coral larvae into the ecosystems caused a major increase in baby corals. The project hopes the method can be used on a larger scale to help reefs affected by bleaching recover more quickly. This is part of a new initiative funded by the Australian Government, who in April allocated $400 million US dollars to combat the effects of warming oceans on the @unesco World Heritage Site.
