Spoiler alert: the current management of polar bears is not sustainable.

Our Coral Reefs in 2050 with Dr Emma Camp. As an ocean explorer, she has discovered natural populations of super tolerant corals, which she is researching to better understand how corals may survive in the unpredictable decades to come. Emma talked about the current state of corals on the Great Barrier Reef, explained to us the science behind resilient corals that are able to live in challenging conditions, and predicted how they might be the key to the survival of coral reefs in a warmer, and more acidic future.
