Most of the world's reefs are dying, so scientists are creating fake ones to spur rehabilitation.
Algae will soon take over the Great Barrier Reef, a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports revealed.
Greenpeace Brazil has recently released the first ever underwater images of the coral reef system discovered at the mouth of the Amazon River last year.
Climate change poses a great threat in the long-term survival of deep-sea coral population in the North Atlantic region.
Researchers are flabbergasted over the discovery of a coral reef system located at the muddy waters off the mouth of the Amazon River.
Scientists have found a new tool for combating Crown of Thorns Starfish (CoTS) that threaten the Great Barrier Reef: Household vinegar, which has proven to kill the starfish in lab settings and is a cheaper alternative to current drugs.
COTSbot to the rescue! A robotics team has developed a robot to eliminate the invasive crown-of-thorns (COTS) starfish, which is a huge threat to the Great Barrier Reef. What next, a robot for Lionfish in U.S. waters?
You may have heard some mixed opinions about the state of coral reefs. Some will argue that coral conditions are in a natural flux, or that reefs will have time to adapt to our changing oceans. Others have found that coral populations have sustained irreparable damage. Now several new studies help show that things are a LOT more complicated than you might imagine.
The iconic Great Barrier Reef in Australia avoided being put on the World Heritage Site's "in danger" list, based on a UNESCO draft report, however concerns were still raised about its future in the long term.
It's no secret that the Great Barrier Reef is in danger as climate change and ocean acidification diminish coral populations, but now new research suggests that an ancient slowdown that occurred after the Ice Age warned this iconic ecosystem of its bleak future.
