Introduced in 1935, Queensland, the cane toad was release to target a beetle that was damaging lucrative sugar cane crops. Only 102 toads were initially released, but the toads quickly multiplied and spread across Australia, eating everything except the cane beetles and damaging native animal populations. Environmental ecology is a complex system, difficult to imitate and control.

Professor Emma Johnstone explains the biology and life cycle of coral, from the calcium carbonate exoskeletons and venomous polyps to the photosynthesising symbionts that live in their tissue. But as ocean temperatures rise, the symbiotic relationship between the algae and the coral breaks down, causing the reef to bleach and decay. Ruth Gates, Director of the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology, is researching answers to this very real crisis in coral symbiosis.

Coral bleaching occurs when the relationship between algae symbionts and the coral is disrupted, which happens when the plant-cells (algae symbionts) are exposed to high temperatures, causing the algae to stop photosynthesising and produce an irritant. The coral then begins to reject the plant-cells, losing its colour and primary energy source. Once the coral has lost its life-giving plant-cells, it will eventually die.

Most corals only spawn once a year, the only window scientists have to trial hybridisation. Corals release tiny bundles of eggs and sperm that float to the surface of the ocean to break up and fertilise. Within a week, the fertilised eggs develop into planula larvae. Planula, no bigger than a grain of rice, must then begin searching for a suitable location and an algal partner (algae symbionts). Ruth Gates believes this moment holds the key for breeding hardier reefs.
