Coral that appear resilient to warming oceans and may survive environmental changes are called Super Coral. Researchers are trying to identify these corals and how they can be used in conservation efforts aimed at protecting the future of reefs.
A PROTECTED MARINE RESERVE FOR SUPER CORAL RESEARCH
Find out how leading marine biologists and graduate students are on a mission to research Super Coral on Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve in The Bahamas and provide a lifeline for coral reefs for future generations to come.
Coral reefs are diverse ecosystems providing a home to a quarter of all marine life. They supply food to millions of people, provide economies with income from fishing and tourism, protect the mainland from storm surge and offer a source for new medicines.
Everyone can help protect and preserve our coral reefs by raising awareness on social media, promoting efforts to rebuild our coral reefs, changing our destructive habits and donating to Super Coral research.
Home to many thousands of species, coral reefs are a biodiverse environment with many species yet to be discovered. They are the lifeline of many island communities and one of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet.
