Waste Not WHY Not

58. Coral Resilience: Shashank Keshavmurthy (Academia Sinica)

June 27, 2022

The ocean temperature is rising, and that’s killing corals. But scientists are finding out that some corals can resist climate change. So if we wanted to make sure that at least some corals survive in the future, which species should we save? 

We are at a coral lab to speak to Shashank Keshavmurthy at the Biodiversity Research Center at Academia Sinica in Taiwan. He’s setting up an experiment to stress test corals in a lab, and trying to figure out how resilient corals can be to temperature changes. 

Welcome to Waste Not Why Not, a climate podcast from Ghost Island Media. Debuted on Earth Day in 2019, it's hosted by Nature N8 (Nate Maynard), a sustainability consultant working on energy, ocean and waste.
