Coral reefs are the nursery for all life in the oceans, a remarkable ecosystem that sustains us. Yet with carbon emissions warming the seas, a phenomenon called “coral bleaching”—a sign of mass coral death—has been accelerating around the world, and the public has no idea of the scale or implication of the catastrophe silently raging underwater.
If you would like to learn more or find ways to help save our corals, join us for a free screening of the film Chasing Corals on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. in LaSells Stewart Center on campus. Following the film, six OSU scientists specializing in coral reefs will present a lively panel discussion with a reception with light refreshments. The event is free and open to the public.
