Why We Should All Love Coral Reefs

This is an event from the 2018 edition

An exciting look at coral reefs, how they work, what they do and why we need them. Dr Michelle Devlin, Cefas, will tell you all about being a marine biologist, what they explore and the techniques they use to help us understand coral reefs.

Dr Michelle Devlin has worked around the world investigating the impacts of humans and human activities on our coastal and marine habitats including rivers, estuaries, coral reefs and seagrass communities. She works on collecting data that helps understand long-term changes, and how those changes have been influenced by people, and also what sort of actions we can take that minimise or reduce the impact of our actions on the vulnerable communities in our coastal and marine ecosystems.
