Last month I was lucky enough to go on a reef regeneration and research trip with Dr Kenneth Zimmerman and University of Newcastle. It was an amazing experience and a fantastic team to work with.
Coral fragments are collected from the outer reef and attached to big metal grow cages. This helps bring the reef back to life in areas that have been affected my tourism.
