Meet in the Crew Room – upstairs at East Looe RNLI Station
Tropical reefs are dying globally due to climate change, creating unfavourable and extreme conditions for reef-building corals. To save coral reefs, which support a quarter of marine life and feed millions of people, we need to rapidly apply new thinking and technologies. Corals have immune systems and, like us, when they have low immunity, they are more likely to get sick and die than those with high immunity. This means that if we can find ways to accurately measure key aspects of coral immunity, we can find, or engineer, the corals most likely to survive future climate extremes. We can then optimise coral conservation and restoration projects.
There is a suggested donation of £2 per person to the Looe Marine Conservation Group for this event to cover costs. The talk will be followed by our monthly meeting to which all are welcome.
