A groundbreaking new project, the Living Coral Biobank will safeguard the biodiversity of all known hard coral species through the collection, housing and maintenance of corals and their algal symbionts in a state of the art holding facility in Port Douglas. Backup fragments will also be housed by public aquariums and home aquarists to create the largest collaborative preservation network of corals in the world, ensuring their survival into the future.
