The ABC’s of Biodiversity: Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are the ocean’s most biodiverse ecosystems, and provide food, coastal protection and income for many people across the world, and here in Malaysia too. But in a recent article in Macaranga, marine ecologist Sebastian Szereday has warned that a lack of action and funding will ring the death knell for coral reefs in the face of warming seas. With most attention focussed on the climate crisis, are we forgetting the parallel biodiversity crisis we are also facing? Sebastian and Natasha Zulaikha, who are co-founders of the organisation Coralku, join us to share more about their collective mission to fight the global decline of coral reefs, and also why coral reefs are an essential ecosystem to this planet, and how detrimental their loss will be to us all. The ABC's of Biodiversity is our ongoing series where we explore why biodiversity loss is our loss.
