COTSbot to Protect Great Barrier Reef from invading Starfish

Coral reefs are one of the extremely beautiful creation by nature. On other hand they are also extremely sensitive to the kind of changes that they can experience through pollution, being decimated by careless tourists, as well as through other underwater lifeforms – such as starfish.The problem of starfish han been solved by Queensland University […]
