April Lecture “Helping Corals Take the Heat: Biotech and Interventions for Coral Conservation”

Speaker: Dr. Liv Williamson
Program Manager at Revive & Restore

Despite their immense economic and ecological importance, coral reef ecosystems are declining at an alarming rate due to climate change and other human impacts. If corals have a chance of surviving in their rapidly warming and changing world, interventions are urgently needed to help them take the heat. In this talk, Dr. Liv Williamson will share the ways scientists here in Florida and around the world are testing and implementing innovative tools to safeguard coral diversity, increase coral resilience, and restore reefs.
