Rescue for the reefs

A story goes around the world (Issue III/2020)


In Australia, researchers have developed a way to save corals from heat death. Due to the rising sea temperatures caused by climate change,  the coral expels symbiotic algae living in their tissues, causing them to bleach and die. In a four-year experiment, it has now been proven that corals survive if heat-resistant microalgae bred in the laboratory are introduced.
