Revolutionizing coral reef restoration: Robots and innovation bring hope

Marine biologist Dr. Taryn Foster and her team at the Abrolhos Islands, Western Australia, are pioneering an innovative approach to revive coral reefs. By grafting coral fragments into artificial bases designed for mass production, they’ve achieved impressive growth rates, bypassing years of natural calcification.

Their collaboration with San Francisco-based engineering software firm Autodesk introduces collaborative robots (cobots) trained by artificial intelligence to handle the delicate task of transplanting corals, offering hope for faster, cost-effective reef restoration. This promising initiative, driven by dedication and technology, signals a brighter future for our threatened coral ecosystems.
