Israeli-Led Mission Sets Sail For Sudan To Study Red Sea Coral Reefs With Sudanese Researchers

Practically every day we are reminded of the miracles that President Trump brought to the Middle East with the Abraham Accords. If President Trump had a second term in office, Israel would have established relations with several other Muslim majority nations in the Gulf, Africa, and Asia. Today, the Biden Administration couldn’t care less about the Abraham Accords. Instead, they are determined to re-enter the JCPOA; a nuke deal with Iran that will guarantee war in the Middle East. Such a tragedy.

Israeli-led mission sets sail for Sudan to study Red Sea coral reefs

Joint project with Sudanese researchers, which will collect coral samples to test their durability, made possible in part by last year’s normalization pact between countries

An Israeli-led scientific expedition sailed on Tuesday from the southern city of Eilat toward Port Sudan, launching a joint project with Sudanese researchers that could help preserve the Red Sea’s unique coral reefs.

The collaboration, aided by Sudan’s normalization of ties with Israel last year, aims to create a first-ever comprehensive study of the entire Red Sea, possibly yielding precious information on the long-term viability of reefs.

While coral populations around the world are undergoing bleaching caused by climate change, reefs in the northern Red Sea, where the Gulf of Eilat lies, have stayed stable because of their unique heat resistance.

He found that the northern Red Sea corals underwent a form of “thermal selection” in their journey from the Indian Ocean through warmer water thousands of years ago.

For years Fine had said that a comprehensive study at the Red Sea reefs was necessary to fully understand the variation from north to south.

But such a study faced diplomatic hurdles, with Arab states to the Red Sea’s south reluctant to work with Israel.
