A revolutionary discovery is allowing corals to grow 40 times faster than in the wild. Normally, it would take 25-75 years to reach sexual maturity but a new process called microfragmenting shortens this to three years.
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

I recommend watching the documentary Chasing Coral if you want to understand the devistating effect climate change has on these animals.

Relocate the planted coral to colder locations that will warm up...

Don't worry, if we keep trying, the coals will also try their best. They will adapt to climate change... They have been doing that for million of years.

Unfortunately it is no use, due to the current rise in ocean temperature caused by climate change Coral reefs are dying at record speed. Even if we replant them chances are they'll die in less than 6 months. We first need to tackle climate change and regulate the ocean's temperature before we can truly save the world's coral reefs. Nothing but respect for these people though, trying to give us a spark of hope.
