Newest research promises to bring new chances for the most endangered species of Atlantic corals. Scientists work hard to enhance the possibilities of extending the corals’ life.
Florida is in our attention now, especially when a team of ambitious scientists decided to reach a path where others failed before. Exploring so many ways to reach any little possibility of keeping one of the most endangered Atlantic coral species alive, the scientists came with something revolutionary.
Scientists decided to use a new method, succeeding to induce reproductive spawning of the Atlantic coral species artificially. This is the first-time process, being developed in an aquarium medium. They also stated that they made great efforts to reestablish exhausted reefs in the wild zone.

The team of scientists preferred to take a look and get inspired by the London-based Horniman Museum and Gardens because they were the first ones that chose this method of inducing spawning of 18 species of Pacific coral. What are they going to do further, based on the other record, is probably one of the greatest works ever.
They plan to use their newest developed knowledge to breed new coral families that can take one day benefit of another chance to repopulate the struggling Florida reef structure. Also, the Florida reed is actually one of the biggest reefs in the world and one destroyed by climate transformation, pollution, or diseases in close years.
Next, the newly cultivated corals will develop even powerful families than existing ones, only because each one will be bred with an incredible type of new genetics and other features that may be more tough to what is truly happening on the reefs soon. The Florida Aquarium succeeded to gather 180 specimens from which only 30 of those were used in their study.
