This week a team of researchers from TU Delft, Van Oord and CSIRO are travelling to the Great Barrier Reef to test a new method for the large-scale rehabilitation of coral.
In this rehabilitation method, coral eggs are collected from healthy parts of the reef and the larvae are placed in the location on the reef where they need to grow. Working with coral larvae has been tried and tested on a small scale and in special tanks.

The team will be posting about their progress on the TU Delft Instagram account this week, so check out Instagram for more footage on the research!
