As the backbone of the most diverse ecosystem on earth, coral is an irreplaceable natural resource. Reefs contribute countless jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars to local economies every year – we need to understand how deeply we depend on them as well as acknowledge the threats they face.

Isaac Rosenthal, recent Northeastern University graduate with degree in biology and marine biology, will provide a foundation of knowledge about both local and tropical corals in modern times, drawing from his research experience both in Panama and in the Gulf of Maine.
