Climate change: Could Red Sea corals save the world’s reefs?

Could Red Sea corals save the world’s reefs? While most corals are very heat-sensitive, languishing if water temperatures rise by as little as 2 degrees Celsius, Red Sea specimens appear to be adapted to a warmer, more salty environment. And these are precisely the conditions that await our oceans as a result of climate change.


Corals are essential to our marine ecosystems, and scientists are studying the Red Sea corals with great interest in a bid to unravel the mystery behind their adaptation capabilities, with the hope of being able to help other oceans adapt to warmer waters.
