Scientists believe that coral transplantation could be a cheap and easy solution for damaged and destroyed coral reefs from disasters like the BP oil spill. Dr. Graham Forrester led a series of scientists in research where they transplanted fresh coral onto an almost completely dead reef.
The results were promising, improving the reef's survival and coral growth rates. This coral transplantation discovery comes at a perfect time, as the aftermath from the disastrous oil spill continues to grow and precious underwater life is being destroyed. Coral transplantation could save valuable reefs.
