SUFB 802: How Micronesian Coral Reefs Respond To Human Impacts and Climate Change With Sara Cannon

By Speak Up For Blue

I had the pleasure to sit down with Sara Cannon to discuss her PhD work on how coral reefs in Micronesia respond to Human Impacts and Coral Reefs. Sara brings up a great point in the interview that some coral reef species are not better off in an MPA as they may not be good for MPAs, especially if they have a large cover. She adds that if those coral species are susceptible to climate change and are responsible for most of the coral coverage, then the reef will have a difficult time recovering as most of the coral will be bleached and often dead. Sara and I also discuss June being Pride month and her challenges as someone who is part of the LGBTQ + community faces in the Marine Conservation field. What are your thoughts on this episode?
