Georgia Tech Ocean Science and Engineering Presents Dr. Elizabeth McLeod, Global Reef Systems Lead, Nature Conservancy

Coral Reefs: The Scientific Evidence of Hope

Climate change is causing unprecedented changes in our world’s oceans. The ability of local management efforts to protect corals has been challenged in the face of recent back to back coral bleaching events. Despite the scope and magnitude of climate impacts, new advances in technology, local actions, and global commitment provide hope for the future of coral reefs ecosystems. 

While the most urgent action to protect corals is the immediate reduction on carbon dioxide emissions, there are a number of steps that can be taken to provide corals a window of opportunity.

 This presentation will explore these steps and discuss the evidence for their efficacy in a changing world.
