Jordan's scientists work to restore coral reefs in Red Sea

Scientists in Jordan are developing techniques that could help repopulate coral reefs.

    They come in myriad colours and are home to many types of marine life.

    But coral reefs are under attack around the world, including in the Red Sea.

    Global warming is blamed for causing sea temperatures to rise which kills the corals.

    Now scientists in Jordan are developing techniques that could restore and repopulate reefs.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Chappelle reports from the port of Aqaba.
