Learn about coral reefs and how changing environments impact them, in these two videos adapted from the Micronesia Conservation Trust. The first video explores how disturbance events (such as coral bleaching, typhoons, and starfish infestation) and land-based pollution affect the coral reefs of Micronesia. Marine biologist Peter Houk explains his research on increasing the resiliency of reefs through ecosystem-based adaptation. The second video looks at the relationship between climate change and reef health. Scientists and community leaders in Ngarchelong, in northern Palau, describe local efforts to protect their marine resources.
