Science Sunday on August 19

Join us for Science Sunday on August 19 at 2pm at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in Sumay.

This month we get a special update on Guam’s coral reefs from David Burdick, a coral biologist at the University of Guam’s Marine Laboratory. He leads the Guam Long-term Monitoring Program and is part of Guam’s Reef Response Team. Chances are you’re familiar with his work if you’ve seen presentations or photos of Guam’s coral reefs. David is the host of guamreeflife.com. Check it out! With recent coral bleaching events among other reef stressors, a harsh reality for coral reefs is already in motion. Despite grim outlooks, all around the world resource managers and communities are working together to take action so our reefs can thrive, instead of just survive. The first step is to understand current issues facing our reefs, so we can decide how to collectively protect our coral reefs. We look forward to the great questions and interesting discussion. We hope you can make it!

Science Sunday is free and open to the public. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. No pre-registration is required. Email gureefmonitoring@gmail.com or call 646-1905 or 333-4050 for more information.
