So as we are all aware that crown of thorns starfish is nibbling away at the Great Barrier Reef. In fact, these little blighters are one of three threats that the great barrier reef encounters every day, the other two being coral bleaching and cyclone damage.

Now the other two threats are pretty hard to deal with… but killing the starfish is, to be honest pretty easy. The only issue is that this of course takes time and plenty of man hours to do, But not anymore! Queensland researchers have developed world first robots that have been designed to inject crown of thorns starfish with a lethal injection.
