Coral Reefs: Climate Change and Environmental Stressors

Environmental stressors are expected to decrease coral reef calcification and threaten the structure and persistence of coral reefs globally. Ms. Kealoha will discuss two coral reef research projects and how her findings of both studies have important health and management implications for Hawai’i’s coral reefs.

Speaker: Andrea Kealoha is from Pāʻia, Maui, and is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M University. As a NOAA’s Nancy Foster Scholarship awardee, she serves as an ambassador for the National Marine Sanctuaries.

Doors will open at approximately 6:00pm and the presentation will begin at 6:30pm.
