Israel, Red Sea Neighbors Join To Study Red Sea Coral


In 2019, a research center opened in Bern, Switzerland, that will be staffed by scientists in a variety of fields, including oceanography, biology, genetics, ecology and geology, from all the countries bordering the Red Sea. The center will study the effects of climate change, agriculture, urbanization, illegal fishing and industrial waste on Red Sea corals. This cooperation between Israel, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan is unprecedented.
