A man's happy accident has brought new hope to the recovery of coral reefs around the world.
Dr. David Vaughan exploded on the terrible discovery, while he worked with coral at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Florida. He tried to remove choral from the bottom of a tank when it broke into a dozen pieces.
To his shock, all pieces were in control of the same size in only three short weeks, as opposed to the three years that it has taken to grow the original coral.
Normally, it takes coral reefs between 25 and 75 years to achieve sexual maturity. This means that it can last up to 6 years only to plant 600 cores – but Vaughan's process of breeding cores for breeding, called "microfragmentation", helps them grow 40 times faster than they do in the wild.

In addition, their tests have shown that it works with each species of coral found in the Florida Reef.
In fact, the method is so effective, the researchers are said to produce a choir faster than they can get tanks to keep them.
The Vaughan team now plans to plant 100,000 corals in the Florida Reef Track by 2019. The researchers also plan to share their method with conservatives around the world, so that they can collect a million coral in the following years.
