How Electric Current Can Increase Coral Growth with Hannah Kish

Not all ocean conservation organisations are legitimate or doing the right thing for our planet or the volunteers. Today, we decided to discuss some of the less happy points of volunteering.

Have you wondered how coral nurseries work? How regrowing coral can help the great barrier reef? Can we help save the Great Barrier Reef?

Join me and Marine Biologist Hannah Kish as we discuss coral spawning, threats to the reef, and how you can help!

This incredible woman has worked with Florida’s Coral Conservation¬†along with the Great Barrier Reef’s Reef Restoration Foundation. We met when we were both volunteering on Fitzroy island and cleaning the coral tree nurseries from excessive algae growth. She is an inspiring woman who is now working towards finding which methodologies or systems can increase coral grown in nurseries.

In this Ocean Pancake Episode we talk about all things coral: from spawning, taking care of coral, sexual and asexual reproduction and why it is so important in our coral reef ecosystems.

We also talk about volunteering with ocean conservation organisations and how to spot one which operates ethically and in the realms of proper eco principles, rather than the growing field of eco tourism.
