AXA Coral Live 2021

8 Nov 2021 - 17 Nov 2021

We were delighted to return to the CARMABI research station on Curacao in the Caribbean for Coral Live after visiting remotely in 2020.

Schools across the planet joined us and the team of scientists in exploring the wonders of the coral reef. There were lessons for all ages, with a focus on wonder and living things for younger students, all the way to exam-grade case studies on marine ecosystems.

With the COP26 climate conference taking place during Coral Live, we also touched on caring for this fragile ecosystem.

Watch on catch up below.
