Event Details

The Waikiki Aquarium continues its Distinguished Lecture Series on November 2, 2017 with Dr. Robert Toonen of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. Dr. Toonen's lecture, The Future of Hawaii’s Coral Reefs Under Human Pressures and Climate Change, will highlight the issues currently facing our coral reefs.

Coral reefs provide billions of dollars of ecosystem services annually, and hundreds of millions of people rely on them for food, but reefs across the planet are in rapid decline. Some predict this rapid decline will result in the extinction of coral reefs by mid-century, but how accurate are those predictions? Dr. Toonen leads a team of researchers at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology who are looking at how different corals deal with climate change, and where the next generation comes from if our local corals are wiped out from a disease outbreak or mass bleaching event. Together with lessons from the past, these pieces of information shed some more light on the likely future of coral reefs in Hawaii and throughout the Pacific.
