  • In an article published in Nature today two researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University (Coral CoE at JCU) say the world’s reefs will disappear by 2070 if climate change continues on its current path.
  • Prof Tiffany Morrison and Prof Terry Hughes suggest a new, holistic approach to safeguarding coral reefs by focussing on land as well as the ocean.
  • The authors suggest that a bolder, scaled-up approach to the stewardship of land and sea — focused initially on coral reefs — could itself help society meet this goal.
