Help us save the Great Barrier Reef. Your donation will support our research on containing the Crown of Thorns Starfish outbreaks that devastate the Reef: http://australianmuseum.net.au/Help-the-Reef
Since 1980, Australia's Great Barrier Reef has lost half its coral. The main causes are storm damage and COTS. We can’t stop the storms, but we can promote coral recovery by containing COTS.
Further research is required on causal factors and methods of control. The Australian Museum’s Lizard Island Research Station is ideally located for COTS research and has hosted significant discoveries, such as the new single-shot injection technique shown in the video above.
It is expensive to maintain first-rate marine research facilities on a remote tropical island. Visiting scientists contribute as much as they can afford, but the Station could not continue without the ongoing support of the Australian Museum and donors.
it only eats fast growing coral not the slow growing coral./ I wonder why they didn't mentioned that. The Crown of Thorns was well on its way to destroying the reef per a Jacques Cousteau program around 1968.
Elke SEYSER and corals are animals so they have rights too and if we don't eradicate this starfish a lot more animals will be eradicated and eventually our oceans will be filled with dead corals and fish
find out what venom is used, by the snails, to inject the start fish, use this toxin.
also, domesticate the predators of the start fish, like snails and other animals, releasing these into the wild. track them and their movements, allow nature to work for us, and then remove the excess predators, for use as food, or re-population of reserve stocks.
is one able to place a floating muscle farm here?
is one able to "domesticate" carnivores snails, and "release the Snails!" upon the starfish, while in turn also "domesticate"
the starfish fore use with eating things that need to be eaten by this starfish?
how are you speeding up the growth? are you electrifying these steel structures?
"if i am to spend 4 hours cutting down a tree, i would spend three sharpening my axe."
"if i am to spend four hours working coral, i would not like to spend three, removing rust." ?
would stainless steel be better, for foundation, and for tools, to prevent rust, and reduce the stress on the coral, when trimming?
are these coral, using photosynthesis or are they filter coral?
has fire coral been gardened this way?
would rubber dry suits be used to prevent stings?
when using zip ties are they removed, after the coral roots?
has an epoxy been created, that contains the nutrients required to grow a shell for the coral? that can be consumed and not remain as a toxic waste?
dose coral react to ultraviolet lights? or ultraviolet light, from the sun? perhaps some fish and other animals see ultra violet colors that we cannot using regular lights or camera?
how can one create a habitat for octopus and other invertebrates?

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
