REEF RESCUE

In the last 30 years the climate crisis has wiped out roughly half of the planet’s coral. But new science reveals that some corals – so called “super corals” – are unexpectedly surviving the world’s worst bleaching.

Weaving together exquisite underwater expeditions, a global reef mapping mission, cutting-edge genetic engineering and evolution research in Australia, Hawaii, Florida, and the South Pacific, Reef Rescue follows the story of an international team of scientists who are “assisting evolution” to develop corals that can survive in the oceans of our future. But can they unlock the secrets of survival before it’s too late?
