Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they explore the awesome, and maybe slightly weird, the world of corals! As per usual, the boys start off with some news, Tom got a bit carried away this week so apologies in advance! Finally getting into corals the boys explore exactly what they are in the first place! Plants? Animals? Both? Interesting there are a few types of coral reefs that form in different ways and a few different types of corals themselves! Lastly, get ready to learn about threats to corals and reefs and what we can do to protect them! Remember, you have the marine biologist’s approval to slap rocks out of people’s hands 😉
