Searching for the World’s Super Corals

Resilient corals, often referred to as "super corals", have recently been seen as potential saviours in the face of climate change and its detrimental effects on coral reefs.

Join us this lunch session with UTS Scientist Dr Emma Camp to learn how "super corals" survive in extreme habitats and why its' crucial for developing effective conservation strategies.
