Good episode? Give it some love!
Corals are incredible animals that support an estimated 25% of all marine life. But without the algae living inside them, coral reefs can’t survive. Scientists recently discovered that bacteria also live within these algae. Could the right bacteria help protect corals and their algae from rising global temperatures? In our second special episode for the Pint of Science Festival, we chat with Dr Justin Maire about his latest research.

You can learn more about Justin’s latest research in his latest scientific publication or in this article for Pursuit.

Pint of Science is an international festival which has been running in Australia for the last 7 years.

This not-for-profit science festival aims to bring local researchers out of the lab to speak with the public about their current science research. Find out more: https://pintofscience.com.au/festival/2021
