  • Researchers in Israel have developed a method of 3D printing corals which will help regrow bleached reefs.
  • They believe that corals and other reef-building creatures will settle and start to grow on this structure and in turn will start to build and form the reef.
  • The researchers are using a terracotta clay that becomes ceramic and maintains its porosity when fired in the kiln and has similar properties to the actual coral skeleton.
