Emma works with approximately 20-50 species of extreme corals, accounting for only a small number of the 500+ species in the GBR. So these alone cannot protect the GBR, but as these corals appear resilient to conditions intensifying with climate change, they will hopefully provide the time and insights necessary to restore coral growth.

The incident was not confined to a single location; it swept across the world’s oceans like an unstoppable wave.  And the increasing frequency of their occurrence is one of the most dramatic visual indicators of the impact of climate change on living systems. Camp has plans to address it.
