Will changing your sunscreen save coral reefs? What even IS a coral? Where do they grow and what do they eat and why are they so pretty? Is it reefs or reeves? The charming coral biologist and cnidariologist Shayle Matsuda of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology/UH Mānoa takes time out of his busy schedule to chat about how magical and beautiful coral can be and why reef health is important. Today’s episode comes from our friends at the show Ologies, where host Alie Ward interviews different scientists about their areas of expertise.
