Do you know that corals are living animals? Did you think they might be rocks? It's okay because you are not alone. There are many people who don't know much about coral reefs other than they are beautiful to see on TV and everyone wants to see them. But the thing is that corals are great for the oceans and coastlines. Corals form dense biodiversity and decrease wave energy to protect eroding coastlines. Reefs are critical to the ocean, but there are specific environmental and human disturbances that are causing them to degrade to the point of no return. you need to know more about them to help protect them. On the podcast today, Dr. David Vaughan joins me to discuss his new book The Secret Life of Corals: Sex, War, and Rocks that don't Roll to help you better understand corals and provide you with opportunities to help save them.
