Please join us for our first meeting of 2024!

Our presenter will be Dr. Juli Berwald,

Title: Can the World's Coral Reefs be saved?

Bio: Juli Berwald received her PhD in ocean science from the University of Southern California. The author of Life on the Rocks and Spineless and a science textbook writer and editor, she has written for a number of publications including The New York Times, Nature, Science, National Geographic, and Texas Monthly.


Summary: Coral reefs are a microcosm of our planet: extraordinarily diverse, deeply interconnected, and full of wonders. But corals across the planet are in the middle of an unprecedented die-off, beset by warming oceans, pollution, damage by humans, and a devastating pandemic. Juli will share the lessons she learned traveling the world with scientists and activists operating in emergency mode, doing everything they can think of to prevent coral reefs from disappearing forever.
