Reef Reborn—Into the Unseen World

Discover how revolutionary new technology is providing a glimmer of hope for Bali’s once magnificent coral reefs, which now lie tortured and lifeless.

Produced by NHNZ

Most of Bali’s coral reefs have been destroyed, and lie tortured and lifeless on the sea bed. Coral bleaching and a deadly combination of explosives and cyanide fishing have wiped out the reefs and much of the marine life that once teemed around them.

This is the fascinating story of a determined Balinese community and two marine scientists who have invented a revolutionary new technology called ‘mineral accretion’, which rebuilds coral reefs up to five times faster than they would naturally occur. These important marine ecosystems could soon be brought back to life to once again shelter a magnificent array of exotic marine life.
