The Caribbean Sea gets a lot of attention for its colorful and diverse coral reefs, but Hong Kong’s waters host some 84 species of coral, more even than the Caribbean. And just like the reefs in the Caribbean, those that inhabit the coasts of Hong Kong are also facing the devastating effects of climate change. In an effort to help the corals survive long enough to adapt to the warming waters, marine biologists at the University of Hong Kong are 3D printing terracotta tiles for the corals to grow on.
That’s amazing! Love that uses for 3D printing technology are only limited by imagination!
@SpaceMoose Right?! Thought this was pretty amazing!
