The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science have created a Global Coral Reef map covering 65,000 square kilometers that is available for free to the public.
The dataset was collected over a 10-year period as researchers traveled to over 1,000 coral reefs in 15 different countries.
I talk about the amount of work that has to go into creating a dataset that uses satellites and field data during this episode. Take a listen.
How do you think the map will be used for conservation? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
