Ocean Encounters: Giving Reefs a Chance

How science and technology can help corals in crisis

Speakers: Dr. Yogesh Girdhar, Robotics x Oceans x AI, WHOI
Dr. Colleen Hansel, Marine Biogeochemist, WHOI

Coral reefs are in trouble. We have already lost more than half of the world’s reefs in just 50 years, while climate change, pollution, and other stressors continue to decimate what remains of these biodiverse and beautiful ecosystems. Ending the coral reef crisis will not be easy, but it is still possible. Join us to hear how WHOI scientists and engineers are working together to diagnose reefs at risk—and bring degraded reefs back to life.

Hosted by Veronique LaCapra, Director of Special Projects, WHOI.
