Stanford Professor Steve Palumbi speaks with Stanford Report about a new coral study conducted by a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee. The report scrutinized tools available to save coral reefs and future possibilities for coral research.
“This is the first of two reports which are intended to determine what we can do to make coral reefs more resilient to climate change. The report reflects a sense of urgency. We need to start helping corals now, so that as the climate gets worse – and it will inevitably get worse – we’re a little bit in front of the problem,” Palumbi says.
