This coral scientist is fighting to save the world’s reefs
This is the first time she saw a coral reef – just seven years ago on holiday with his family in the Bahamas. The camp was instantly attracted to the ocean. “There is one that is drawn into this unknown world by myself,” he recalls.
Now 33, was born in Britain, marine biologist with the leading researcher coral and resilience to the conservation of the University of Sydney and Technology – fighting to save the marine wonders at first taken as a child.
The relevant globe by working harder and investigation to find the world’s most resilient of all resources, and – in the best case, the kind of climate to survive crisis.
Uca has nothing in him all the wealth and the increasing throughout the world, they are irrigated, of the countries in that, between the Caribbean, Seychelles and Indonesia. In 2016, she was both the first team to find all the resources Uca, the Philippines, the South Pacific. In 2019 for the first time described are similar to all of its resources on the perimeter of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef … Uca diameter.
Uca few bodies of standing water in the tropics near the island, which is suitable salts in tablets and shrubs grow.
In the pool, “it’s naturally warm nature of the acidic and low oxygen conditions,” she called. In the reefs, coral is like to die as air conditioning change the ocean does when it is warmer, more acidic water, and reduced oxygen levels – but spinners Uca , coral and thrive. the camp only aim is to identify the special qualities resources Uca, which allow to survive in a hostile environment.
Uca, horses, be a solemn assembly for hire from our camp, the example of veil of silk, to the genetic make up and that a state of coral, the reef DNA lab to learn more about how they differ from the Sydney nibh.
In Australia, to the reef between the camp of the army and the troubles the marsh with the fragments of the coral Uca.
Manglicis to be transferred onto the reef, so that the test material resources, which are species of tree shall not blossom, and says, this rock of the old ivory, they are, as long as it is moved to the place of Uca, to assess the damage, rather than to anger, they, react to the environment. If any one shall come to pass in that day, when they came into the camp, unless hand, be able to use more scientists have to work out a repair for almost all of the heavens, and the change of all the disadvantaged areas of the soft rock.
The fragments of the tables of the small amount of the bond of the rope is compact with a high degree the operation of the control are closely, so as not to cut the team projects. This ensures to move to other places, they are not among the species that were not known, the consequences of this.
He remains in the camp ocean optimist “, and ultimately, the need for the” redemption period “on climate change.
“Time is short and urgent,” she said. “If we do not act, this is critically important ecosystems lost … or at least you’re going to be severely degraded to the point where in fact they can not go back.”
