Coral Protector

In recent years, global warming has been a growing problem, with increasing seawater temperatures leading to increased coral bleaching and high-temperature stresses releasing The reactive oxygen species (ROS) react with the coral to produce severe oxidative stress. In order to prevent coral bleaching at the earliest possible stage, we use UAV and underwater PAM technology to monitor corals in the regional range. and first aid by seeding RNP particles encapsulated in alginate biodegradable polymers to remove reactive oxygen species from coral cells, restore the Coral health and improve coral's ability to adapt to high temperatures.
