Rising ocean temperatures resulting from climate change are damaging coral reefs around the world. However, after a bleaching event, scientists have found some corals are able to survive. These super corals may show the way for future coral reef conservation.
Aquarium President and CEO Jerry Schubel will moderate a panel discussion featuring coral experts from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and other organizations. The Aquarium will open a super coral exhibit in late 2019. A new show on the same topic will play in the Ocean Science Center on NOAA’s Science on a Sphere starting June 4.
