Benioff Proposal Video

Benioff Proposal Video

AME Cheif Science Officer Dr. Sonia Rowley submitted this video as part of a proposal to the Benioff Ocean Initiative to expand our ongoing efforts to document deep coral reefs in Pohnpei. The proposal outlines how multiple stressors can challenge coral ecosystems, and inhibit them from recovering from major threats such as ocean warming. Through this effort, we hope to demonstrate an exploratory-based conservation model: to discover, share, protect, and leverage a natural capacity, the raw material of which already exists.
