Coral IV

Coral IV

Last year, the Great Barrier Reef suffered its third mass bleaching – the third in the last five years – which has meant that the annual event of mass coral spawning is now not enough to replace the corals lost over the years resulting factors including climate change.

Coral IVF is one technique aimed at re-establishing coral breeding populations on damaged reefs by giving nature a helping hand by collecting millions of coral eggs and sperm during the spawning season, growing them into baby coral and releasing them onto degraded areas of the Reef.

In 2016 the Great Barrier Reef foundation introduced this game-changing technique of Coral IVF and since its introduction the Foundation and its researchers have successfully utilised (and enhanced) the technique to restore and repair damaged coral populations.
