Palau’s coral reefs display remarkable resilience to climate change, offering hope for the future

Exciting news emerges from the heart of the Pacific Ocean, as a groundbreaking study led by Newcastle University reveals that coral reefs in Palau are showing historic resilience to rising ocean temperatures. This remarkable adaptation, with coral thermal tolerance increasing at a rate of 0.1°C per decade since the late 1980s, offers a glimmer of hope against the looming threat of climate change.

If we continue to reduce global carbon emissions as per the Paris Agreement commitments, we could witness a significant reduction in coral bleaching impacts, safeguarding these vital ecosystems for generations to come. The future of our coral reefs is not without hope.
