Thats a great video. I would love to see the whole documentary.

The thing is whats to say the reef won't just get burned again?

Granted, I think this is the way conservation works best. Especially if a small percentage say 10% of frags are then sold to hobbiests as well to then support the project and make the locals realize how important the reef is itself.

Very interesting! Strangely enough, I was thinking to myself a couple days ago if a project like this existed, and that it would be a great way to keep the wild reefs going.

That's what I was thinking while watching the video, wouldn't the same factors that caused the reef to become bleached affect the new coral?

Well if they're taking the left over coral maybe they're more resistant?

I was amazed at the growth in one year...

If anyone has connections I would skip college and go live on Fiji doing this.. :hihi:

this is almost exactly what we do in the reef club I'm in for our aquariums. Unfortunately they aren't returned to the reef but we do sell them to other hobbyist which helps curb the need from pulling them from the ocean.

frags on stone disks, grow them out, frag again repeat. I'd love to work on a project like this though! You get the best of both worlds! :bounce:
