Reef Nursery Symphony: Soundscaping for Coral Restoration

Season 3 Episode 1 | 4m 36s

Professor Steve Simpson from Bristol University, UK, plays the sounds of a healthy reef to baby coral nurseries. These sounds will later guide the coral to settle in ideal locations. This innovative approach, on an industrial scale, marks a giant leap toward coral reef restoration, blending science, engineering, natural history, and conservation on a grand scale.
