        Coral Reef Damage in American Samoa | HHMI BioInteractive

        Steve Palumbi has been doing research on the corals around Ofu Island in American Samoa for years. He is trying to determine why these native corals can withstand ocean temperatures that, in other coral species, would lead to coral bleaching. Along with graduate student Megan Morikawa, Palumbi is testing whether these heat-resistant corals can be transplanted to reefs that have been damaged or destroyed.
