"Through public health and finally my staff got through to them and said look. Dr calve mirth is gonna send somebody to public house. Can you please have a cooler ready. So that she can pick it up. And so yeah. My son was our currier and went over with the cooler and brought it back. Yeah i know but this is this demand for the flu. Vaccine is was so anticipated. Wasn't it and the plan was to have a massive vaccine probably eighty percent coverage. How is it that we don't have the the vaccine. So i don't know that that is part of this question about The lack of transparency. Because when we're told don't worry don't panic they'll be enough for everybody and then literally like even now. I have doctors and teachers who i've given the flu shot to. They're not my patients but they haven't been able to get it for themselves. And i know that my colleagues across ontario are struggling with the same thing pediatricians and family doctors where we spent a lot of time booking patients for flu shots and then were already working sixty hours a week and we don't have then time to cancel everybody when we run out and it's also demoralizing when we say but we don't have it and then the politicians says oh yes but there's more than enough to go around. Just be patient and it's symptomatic of this larger problem right eye antero premier doug ford. He said that there would be the flat will be available. He addressed the issue yesterday. I just want to play a bit of what he had to say. Get to respond to it. So here's doug ford plumbing flip this around great news that we've seen an increase of flu shots. A five hundred percent people are listening. And we're doing everything we can as for rex. All my friends and rexel. You knew the allocations i had so don't overbook people. It's very simple as that. You knew exactly how many flu shots you had similar to shoppers. So don't overbook if you know you have x. Amount of flu shots book x amount of flu shots. But if you have one hundred flu shots. Don't book two hundred people all right. That is Doug ford just for people who don't know that reference to rextall This drugstore that was Was designated to be a place where you could get the vaccine. And they ran out. So what do you. How do you respond to the premier. So i think we call that gas lighting for premier. Doug ford to say that they've done everything that they can. And that it's the fault of the pharmacist for overbooking it's not actually addressing the issue. Which is that. There was never enough flu vaccine ordered. And it's it's all crumbs crumbs that we're getting where we you know. We're we're told well if doctors can't cope then there must be something wrong with doctors and nurses can't cope. There must be something wrong with nurses if ps ws are quitting their jobs. There must be something wrong with them. As opposed to. There's something wrong with our health care system. There's something wrong. There's a lack of support the lack of infrastructure. You know telling people well you just obviously booked too many too. Many patients in for the flu shot isn't interesting. The problem which is there is no flu vaccine there. And how is this going to work when it comes to the covid vaccine. That's that's the really scary thing. It's going to be the same people who have the resources and who can pull strings. Who are going to have access to a vaccine while the people who most need it are not going to have access to it on there. We are going to be blamed..

"The documentary chasing Coral premiered in July 2017 and it is a powerful film and since we've been talking about coral reef conservation at the shop thought it would be good to do a review of chasing Coral here on scuba Shack Radio. I watched it again a few days ago and it was just as impactful as the first time I saw. The documentary was conceived by Richard veevers who is currently CEO of the ocean agency. Richard worked at a top London advertising agency before he got involved with a passion on Ocean conservation. He was working on a project called Excel Caitlin Seaview survey regarding images of coral reefs that's where he started to understand the impacts of coral bleaching. Around this time. He watched a documentary called Chasing Ice produced by Jeff orloski and chasing Coral was born. I thought I'd give some key statistics on what it took to put together chasing Coral first. It took about three years to shoot over 500 hours of incredible underwater footage off. There were Thirty countries contributing to the documentary and more than 500 volunteers involved just an incredible effort. The film won the People's Choice Award for best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding nature documentary. Jeff Orlowski was originally from Staten Island, New York. He went to Stanford to study anthropology got into filmmaking and worked on the Extreme Ice survey that turned into Chase nice in 2009. He found it exposure Labs a production company focused on socially relevant issues. So chasing Coral is really about the quest to document with imagery a coral bleaching event. By reviewing what was happening at carries forward Reef in in the Florida Keys and at airport Reef in America Samoa. They determined that they would need to build a viable underwater time lapse camera. That's when they go to a company in Boulder. Colorado called view into the blue and they were going to build a housing. That would keep it self clean. It just so happens the exact Rego works at view Into the Blue. He describes himself as a coral nerd and becomes a main player in the documentary. With the cameras developed, they deploy to Hawaii Bermuda and the Bahamas and they put down their cameras and wait a couple months to get the images. It's a failure. The images are out of focus a lost opportunity. It's back to the drawing board to fix the problems before their next attempt. The next opportunity is on the Great Barrier Reef. They head out deploy their cameras and wait a large typhoon impacts their plans. So they read the place to another Island lizard Island, but they aren't able to take any of their special cameras the team needs to do time lapse manually that means going out every day setting up the camp exactly as before and getting the photos painstaking and exhausting after more than a hundred days. They complete the work over that timeframe. The coral has bleached died and his overgrown by algae Zack is extremely emotional at this incredible loss. It's crazy to think of water temperatures at 95° Fahrenheit, but that's what it was dead. Another team went to New Caledonia where they observed an amazing phenomenon fluorescent corals an attempt to Shield itself from the temperatures an amazing sight am amazing colors just before bleaching extremely sad to see the corals stunning last gasps. The documentary continues with Zach and Richard presenting their work at the international coral reef Symposium in Hawaii the time lapse photography of the coral reef dying over a two-month period of dramatic and overpowering the reaction of the attendees demonstrates the sadness. The film wraps up with Jack diving with one of his Heroes doctor Charlie Verona Pioneer in Coral research and conservation. They are diving on a beautiful unimpacted part of the reef off Charlie reflects back on maybe he didn't do enough. Maybe we all need to do more. Corals are being assaulted on many fronts not just climate change but pollution sunscreen and carelessness citizens are trying and we need our governments to act as well. Perhaps a new day is Dawning. If you haven't yet seen chasing Coral. You can find it on Netflix. Please find a time. You won't be disappointed. If you've already watched it believe me. It's worth watching again. We can't let them
The Slow Regrowth of Vulnerable Coral Reefs is Solvable
"Minds. Sarah, Hamlin I'm a scientist Mike Marine Lab in Florida and myself is growing car rates forty to fifty times a spade that Karl grows in the wild. Now there's a number of reasons while Koru is really important I mean who doesn't love going out snorkeling and seeing colorful reefs teeming with beautiful fish but they also provide us with goods and services whether that be tourism or employment the food table. And Florida align every system he is estimated to be worth about eight billion dollars not only that but these race protect I landed property from things like storm surge. So really good example of this is Hurricane Irma which was in two thousand seventeen had twenty five foot waves heating the Florida race track down in Lewke where I am and we had a storm surge at building, which is in Summerlin K. of only five foot. So we didn't have a rift system they're healthy ray system there you can imagine that that storm surge those waves would really decimate the land. So I I can hear your Australian accent Australia of course, famous for the Great Barrier Reef what's going on with climate change and coral reefs around the world? Well, wide was seeing a great reduction in live Carl Kaba So this is across the well whether it be Australia United States or any Pacific Ocean island nations. You might have heard of coral reefs as the rainforest say and that that's saying is because even the car reefs tyke out less than one percent of the seafloor. twenty-five percent of nine marine species actually rely on car roofs. At some stage of their life we're seeing Wolmar, she anik temperatures. We're seeing a lot more pollution going into the oceans, and this is resulting in las of live Carl tissue almost as much. If any consequences of climate change, I can think of the people who are really in contact with this are shocked and appalled and upset at a level that those of us who don't come into coral on a into contact with Karl on a daily basis. I don't really get I mean I have your you're in the Florida keys I have a nephew who's into a skin diving and spearfishing in Miami and he's a young guy, and just in the years he's been doing this the coral around Miami I mean he's like shocked and upset when he sees it and says, he can't really fish anymore just because of the change in the last decade, we have lost around ninety percent of that Caro cover in the last forty or fifty years and some of the race in the. Case now or the Florida Reef tractor as low as between four and six percent starting Caro cover, which is quite loy. So we're talking on zoom you have a fantastic backdrop of coral and I don't know enough to know what kind it is but we hear these terms like staghorn coral and I heard of Elk Horn coral what are the main forms of coral that you're working with and what do they look like? We have branching corals and we have massive Carl's so branching Caro's the Stag owns the call and you. Can picture what the antlers of a staghorn or alcorn look like they look exactly like that. So skinny branch is really perfect three dimensional habitat for fish and shrimp and all the Little Rafe critters out there, and then we've got a massive Carl's and these might be brain corals essentially look like the folds and grooves of a brain stock Carl's have They polyps alike little cop. So little stars and their every feeling Carl's they the Carl's that are creating the race and really growing that lodge Rafe structure that remained stable off the storms

"There's been a breakthrough recently in restoring coral off the coast of the Florida keys. Scientists have gotten it to spawn more rapidly, and that's notable. Because much of the Coral off the Florida keys is dying Sarah. Hangman is Superintendent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and she joins us now. Welcome. Thank. You for having me Tanya, and Sarah to remind everyone coral spawns it's not a plant but a marine invertebrate scientists are using a technique called micro fragmentation to get coral to reproduce. It's called re skinning give us the lay person's version of what this is. Sure. So corals, as you noted, are animals and a lot of people aren't aware of that because they kind of look like colorful rocks on the sea floor, they don't move and they form these big mountains and so the reskilling technique that scientists have pioneered here in Florida involves taking tiny pieces of coral tissue, basically the skin of the rock if you will and taken duplicate little pieces of it. So pieces that are the same genetic material, and if you picture a little piece of coral tissue like a piece pepperoni on a pizza and you place those all around that coral rock. If you will that skeleton then those little pieces start to grow and each of those little pepperoni slices will grow into each other and because they are genetically identical, they will become a single individual colony, and that colony can basically reproduce much more quickly than if that colony had started from a single individual growing naturally, and so naturally, a quarrel would take decades to get to the age where it could reproduce. But using this technique scientists have discovered that they can get corals to reproduce in as few as five years, which is really fantastic given the state of our reefs around the world. Coral die off is this worldwide phenomenon? Why is it important for coral to be a part of the reef off of the keys? The research important for a lottery seasons here in the Florida keys tourism is the largest economic driver and people come here because they wanna get in our beautiful turquoise water and they wanna see our colorful vibrant alive reefs. They also provide a tremendous fisheries. That's the second largest economic activity here in the Florida keys. That's very important. But then also these reefs provide coastal protection. So they are out there bringing those waves down as they come in from offshore and really helping us because down here in the keys, these islands are very low lying. We don't have a lot of room to climb up and get away from wave action and so our reefs are helping to protect our coastline. So they provide a lot of services to us here in the keys. What's killing them. A lot of things are hard corals right now, temperature stress is making it difficult for quarrels. Water quality is a challenge for corals and then right now here in Florida, we are experiencing an unprecedented multiyear coral disease event that is just devastating Arif. So they're suffering from a whole lot of different impacts, and so it's a hard time to be a coral. You're leading a fifteen year hundred million dollar project to restore the coral. In light of everything that you just said, do this with pollution and all of these other factors, killing them and knowing that all of those factors aren't going away anytime soon. That's a great question, and that is a question that gets asked a lot. Is it a waste of time to put out more corals when the corals that live there are dying and the answer is we cannot afford to wait to solve those bigger problems we need to be doing both. We need to be addressing climate change we need to be making our water quality better. But we cannot wait until we solve those problems to also help the resilient and resistant corals that still exist to continue to survive out there we need more of those Gino types that genetic material on our reef we cannot wait we just cannot wait the system is is too important One last question I want to ask you about I mean barrier reefs are rare in the US. Can you expound upon that in the context of the global issue that we're seeing around coral die off The Florida Reef tract is the only bear ref- system that we have in the United States the only one. It's in my view on par with the Grand Canyon with Yosemite, in terms of it being a national treasure and they are in trouble and we need people to know about it. So they can help us make sure that we get all of these problems addressed that we're tackling so. I think that's why this is really important because we just we don't have another shot at this.

"The Democratic Party is trying to win back. Catholic voters across the country after years of losing support those efforts are particularly visible in one key swing state this fall, Pennsylvania Lucy Perkins of member station W., E. S., a., and Pittsburgh looks at why Hollywood for Democrats to retain Catholic voters. This November even with the ticket led by a Catholic presidential nominee. On a beautiful late summer evening in southwestern Pennsylvania Catholic voters gathered outdoors to rally for Joe Biden. Everybody. Tonight it's so good to see you person. Democratic Congressman Connor Lamb tried to tell the group about how his Catholic faith shapes work, but a group of nearby antiabortion protesters, interrupted lamb calling him an apostate and. Because those of you. Those of you who sent a democratic majority of Congress two years ago. Can. Be Proud of several actual works to try to help the most vulnerable in our society. Lamb never mentioned abortion, but the issue is a polarizing one biden's a practising Catholic but he supports Roe v Wade the Supreme Court ruling that guarantees the right to an abortion. There is one phrase one phrase that reverberates throughout the Bible more times than any other and that frees is be not afraid.

"From NPR and Wbz Jeremy Hobson Im Tanya Moseley it's here and now both president trump and Joe Biden are campaigning in Minnesota today as early voting begins there last night in separate events the two presidential candidates focused their campaigns in very different ways. Will hand the left-wing mob the keys to your kids classroom. Really do this campaign as a campaign between Scranton and and Park Avenue. Let's bring in our Friday politics roundtable. Bethuel. Senior politics editor at NBC News and Scott Wong Senior staff writer at the hill. Welcome to both of you. This week we saw both president trump and Joe Biden face undecided voters something they haven't done in a long time last night. It was Biden's turn in CNN townhall where he called trump's response to the pandemic criminal. And totally irresponsible listen we have to be honest with the American people they're tough. They know as Franklin Roosevelt said things get worse and worse before they get better and better but you gotta level the American people shoot from the shoulder. There's never been a time able to step up this president should step down. Beth, how did Biden do last night as he faced a voters who were undecided Well he got a pretty good reception. People seem very willing to listen to him and receptive to his message whereas president trump earlier in the week really got hit by a lot of pretty tough questions. He doesn't typically sit for that type of interview. So it was noteworthy to see him taking questions from people who weren't automatically willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on the economy on covert and other things. So for Biden has done a pretty good job staying focused he's not being pulled off in two directions that his campaign insists are not the major issues of the campaign. He's staying on message about the pandemic. On the. Economy. That clip you just played where. You said he's scranton versus. Wall Street. Very interesting. He sort of flipping the traditional script usually conservatives Republicans say they. Portray Democrats is the party, the elite, and right now Biden's trying to say that actually Republicans and president trump represent those interests. Scott One. Let me go to you. We heard Tonya setup at the top that these candidates are focusing their campaigns in very different ways that is certainly the case but I wonder. If that is where most voters are right now that they're either full on and trump camp are full on in Biden camp, and there's not a whole lot in the middle right now. Whether it probably is not a whole lot in the middle, but the middle is sort of what's going to decide this election and if for the people who have not made up their minds already. They're taking a close look at at events like these like the ABC town hall with President Trump where he's he stumbled through a few of those healthcare. Questions from undecided voters as well as Joe Biden. Just yesterday. And so looks like president. Trump continues. To try to appeal to his base he's you know, for example, yesterday rolled out. What he called his Pro America Education Plan. which really was something that was trying to appeal more towards his base I think with by Ding, you're seeing more in an appeal to those centrist voters. and. So that's really sort of where the where the differences between. These two candidates you're going to hear over and over as you did last night about this whole. Framing from Joe Biden and his people scranton verses, Park Avenue Joe Biden really wants a hammer home that he is a guy of the people he's he's there representing the little people and is going to be talking a lot about his scranton roots and portraying president trump as somebody who who grew up pretty wealthy and was giving handed a lot of things to him in his life. and. And we probably will expect to hear more of that during the first debates which are on September twenty ninth president trump says he's preparing for the debates by doing what he does. Every day Biden says he's preparing to push back on the false statements that the president has made Beth. What are you expecting to see here in this first debate on the twenty ninth? Well, you can only imagine how this is going to be the the TV show of the century to see the two of them finally come together in this in this campaign that is just so fraught for so many Americans look president trump's been through this. Once he he debated Hillary Clinton, three times and twenty sixteen and even though generally speaking. Most Most Dallas Thought Hillary Clinton won all three debates trump went on to win the election. So they're not necessarily all that predictive, but he has been through this presidential level. Joe. Biden has debated twice as vice presidential nominee wants with Sarah and once with Paul Ryan generally speaking he got good marks at both of those debates but that was twelve years ago. So it more than twelve years ago in the case of the PALIN debate so he's he. could be a little rusty. We are hearing that he is practicing quite intensively and is taking the prep very seriously whereas president trump is is probably a wing, a little more and those false statements. We do know that president trump has a habit of of sort of plunging into things that aren't necessarily true. So how much time Biden spins correcting trump versus making his own case is going to be a little bit of a tricky balance for for Biden. You know also a big issue right now is a corona virus and president trump continues to come under fire for his response to that. Of course, president pence's former lead staffer. Olivia Choi was on the coronavirus task force and she's now saying that she's going to vote for Joe Biden There's actually a video where Choi who has a lifelong Republican says the president only cares about getting reelected not about leading the nation through a pandemic let's listen.

The head of the CDC Dr Robert Redfield testified to Congress and made two big pieces of news. The first is that he said that a vaccine might not be widely available to the public until the summer or fall of twenty twenty one. So that's one more year until we can start canceling plans with our friends again and similar to what other health officials have been saying redfield argued that even if a vaccine were available, now it could take six to nine months to get enough Americans vaccinated in order for there to be widespread immunity for now, we just have to keep wearing masks and that leads us through the second major news item Redfield said that wearing a mask could. Actually, be more effective at protecting against. Kobe. Than getting a vaccine because vaccines might not confer a one hundred percent immunity. He also that all Americans were a mask country could get control the pandemic in a matter of weeks at a press conference following that testimony president trump so that the CDC director quote made a mistake may have misunderstood the questions and answered them quote incorrectly I don't think he did well less than five weeks after announcing, they would be delaying all sports activity until spring for the safety of the student athletes the big ten conference announced that they had voted unanimously on Tuesday to reverse their decision and restart sports most notably college football talk about moving those chains though. The representatives from the university say it was evolving guidance from the experts they've consulted that gave them the confidence to restart school sports president trump more than happy to take credit for the reversal on twitter. The conference happens to be home to a number of battleground states in the upcoming election including Michigan, Iowa Minnesota Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. So we can safely assume trump has no alterior motive here rate. The big ten must proceed with a condensed scheduled to catch up with other conferences and we'll rely on daily testing to mitigate the risk of outbreaks.

"Robert. Muller Larry David Record. As Bernie Sanders in Alec Baldwin even won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Donald Trump, and Brad Pitt is up for an emmy of his own this weekend for his portrayal of Dr Anthony Fauci so giddy. Do you think Jim Carey is a worthy choice to take on the role of a lifetime. Joe Biden worthy in the sense that there's going to be insane chaotic energy to this performance. I don't really know what to expect I. Certainly hope that he wears a yellow pinstripe suit and says smoking. In some way or other even if that has nothing to do with Joe, Biden at all. This. I don't like. This is truly weird to me. I love it and I also think that it's really funny that like your frame of reference was immediately Basque because I don't think there could be a bigger difference in energy. Jim Carey character, and Joe. Biden to be. I mean, look the mask can cut a rug. He's probably got some weird stories in his past. You know about like there's mobsters in the mask probably one of them's named corn pop I. Mean I see some similarities here in terms of like method acting that you could link the roles that carries pursuant. Yeah I. Mean I dig it I think that. I think that any nineties revival role is, worthwhile we're all board please just do the thing for us yeah. Put the mask on. What it does to you, but kill the more important question here though who is snl hiring to play us this season? All right. So I've been thinking about this obviously for me it's going to be Kiki Palmer because he's already played a character named Akila and I think she owes me this this because I ever got to play that role and I'm pretty sure it was based on my life people know this about me but I do have a one-sided vendetta like she doesn't she could care less but. I. Personally can't get over it. For you. You know that's tough. I would say. you know here's the thing you always want somebody who's like kind of got their own like individual appeal, which I feel like know Jim Carrey like he's obviously his own thing. So it makes sense that he would bring some of his own wonderfulness to Joe Biden. So I would say maybe like an Oscar Isaac for you have Oscar Isaac show up and be like oh.

"Your impression of this entire visit? It was good There's things that he should do differently. But showing up in the community is ahead a head nod or if you're Mexican, it's a hat tip we go back. We don't go into we'll see we'll say another we just GONNA throw head back was up anyway. So it's a hat tip to the community and I'm showing up here. and. I want you to know that you're seeing. He should do more of that. Now it doesn't really matter where he goes because all that really matters around that area I mean where he goes in. Florida? Is that the local coverage of the TV commercial because Brown people right now are trying to figure out how to make things work. So they're sitting at home watching the news, right? So the news coverage that he was in our community and he has this plan. That's great. So showing up is very, very important and he should do as much of that Kamala. Harris. Should do that as well. She has an amazing story child of Immigrants Multiracial family like I could wrap those commercials in my sleep and so showing up like that matters. But then also what's more important than this and I've been saying this all morning is that he does have great. Plans I've done focus groups all summer where Latinos love his plans and it moves them. But you have to spend resources to get that plan in the hands of people. So they can sect it and understand it and what's happening right now is you only have his campaign who's now has caught up with Donald trump and his been as much money as Spanish and he's getting out there but he will never be able to spend enough money to do it alone case in point is that as as of July thirty first white focused super pacs raised five hundred million dollars to reinforce Joe Biden's plans with white persuadable voters and under the same time period. Latino Super Pacs, which is only three and I run the largest one Nuestra. We've only received five million dollars in funding that's five million compared to five, hundred million. But then you turn to look at us and go but chuck, why do Latinos not voted the same level as white people? I mean it just answers itself and it just drives me absolutely bonkers. Yeah. It's you know it's funny. Refrain of this conversation is like if they would just actually talk to people, they could do so much better. It seems so simple and yet it is sort of contentious thing. I mean sorted at that point you know you a top adviser to Senator Sanders on his campaign earlier in the year he did really really well among Latino voters in the primaries particularly in California in Nevada, any lessons that Democrats can learn from that. I think. So you know it was I. Tell people is breaks down into really four four things. One is we started early. So I'm practicing what I'm preaching in each of those states are first bilingual communication page started six months in advance. Second we set up offices in the community. So we were in east La we were in Las Vegas I. That's will put our first offices, not our second or third, and then we hired a whole lot of people from that community. We had over two hundred Latino staffers own our staff. In. The primary. Thirdly, we had a very culturally competent campaign, but people realize this is that Bernie Sanders did not have a Latino outreach department in in the campaign I because I was a senior adviser and got to do the budgeting and built out the campaign and higher. Most of the folks I made sure that the Latino was integrated into every department and that we wouldn't be in a department that is normally solid off from the. Rest of the campaign told just show up at the NC L. R. N. Double ACP meeting, not giving any budget authority and not really knowing what the overall strategy of the campaign is. So we included Latinos in the beginning in. So doing that piece having me there that could protect the budget hiring out. People are National Political Director was an Afro Latino by Ana Lilia of the leaders of the departments were women of. Color because Andrew Bernie Sanders. Needed a change this false narrative about this Bernie Bro Three. So I was very intentional and I talk about this in Book T. Bernie about you can have diversity inclusion. If you're intentional about the hiring practice, there's plenty of talented people of color, but you just gotta to work a little bit harder and go through a hundred white boy resumes to get to a person of color because they. Just have more time and resources at their disposal. Yes. That's for sure I mean if you were giving advice to the Biden campaign right now, what would you say because you know you make a really great point you all started early it was intentional from the beginning it was ingrained in the campaign. So we're down to the wire. We have less than fifty days to go how do they sort of turn it around? I think that they have turned it around it's just that they're running out of time. Luckily, they don't have very far to go like they're already have great support and they have the majority of support and he only needs to move probably in a few states maybe between two and eight points and he'll this thing route where he needs to be if we accept the baseline of what most operatives. Take, which is like sixty, five, sixty, eight, seventy percent, which in my mind if they actually did this right, they could get eighty five percent of the vote. If they spent that kind of money, they should be in our community. So I would say the more money you can put into TV, in digital, whatever you're currently doing doublet just double all of it because Latinos aren't getting the message on the ground. Because they're worried about, Cova, they're worried about their kids in school. They're worried about things everybody else's word about, and now we want them to focus on an election. There's one thing focus groups have told me all summer law they all were like we get it. Donald trump is a bad person. We don't trust him. We don't like him, but you don't have to tell me no more why I should not. Like him tell me what Joe Biden's plan is to make Ma laugh better in what he's going to do to fix this cova thing. Get me back to work racket have insurance again from a family I've heard it all summer that was check Roach, and you can learn more about his campaign philosophy.

"Populations have been declining dramatically with climate change remaining a big threat. But this month we got some good news about corals in the Florida Keys here to tell us about it is Dr Hannah Cook, a post doctoral research fellow at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Summerland. Key Florida. Welcome, Hannah. Hi. Thank you for having me. All right. Give us the good news. What's the good news? Oh, well. The great news is that we have documented for the first time worldwide restored corals of a slow growing mountainous star corals feces to be sexually reproductively viable and spawn for the first time in nature. Where was this done? Tell me exactly what you did. So Mote has pioneered this technology called Micro Fragmentation Fusion, which is where we will take a colony. We will cut it up into small, replicate pieces grow in our land nursery, and then we will out plant those pieces onto integrated coral head. And those replica pieces will grow confused. That's the fusion part of that methodology. And essentially, they will form a larger colony faster. And the reason why that is so important is because for many stony school species, sexual maturity is a condition of size, not age, So you can think about think of it like puberty. And so it just means that they have to reach a minimum size in order to produce the next generation of baby corals. And so with this breakthrough, we've basically been able to show that with this methodology we can Create reproductively viable corals of a slow growing massive species within on ly a handful of years instead of decades, because in nature wild girls would take about 10 to 2030 so on, you know, decades to reach sexual maturity and produce the next generation so The fact that we can cut that down significantly to just Ah, handful of years is really a breakthrough for cool restoration science in general and bodes well for the faster recovery of our of our reefs and of our restored populations. Have you tried to re populated dead coral Reef with these new babies? Yes. Oh, mo engages in multi species. Cool Reef restoration, also resilience based restoration. And so we Out plant thousands of fragments of different species. Ah, species that are all he reached building species on what that means is that the species are foundational species. They're the ones that Create the backbone of our reefs. And we have been carrying out coral Reef restoration for several years now for a number of different species, and this year Wass really exciting because it was the first year that we had Multiple populations of different species that we restored to the reefs actually become section mature and spawn. And what were the major hurdles that you had to jump over? Um, well, I mean, one thing is that you know, corals grow slowly in general. And then you know, we have to deal with the stressors that air happen naturally in the environment. So, for example, these corals that's pond we out, planted them in 2015. And in 2015, there was a global bleaching event in 2017. The Florida Keys experienced a category for Hurricane Irma and in 2019. That site was hit by the stony Call a tissue loss disease, which is the deadliest coral disease outbreak. Ever recorded on a contemporary reef and certainly for Florida's Corp for weeks, So you know we are doing our best to store these corals and the species and use a variety of science based strategies. But we always have to deal with natural on predictable events that happen in nature. But the fact that our corals are surviving these natural stressful events and able to have enough energy to put towards sexual reproduction. Is great. It gives us optimism and hope and shows that what we're doing is working and that you know it should continue to work. As we move forward these air really resilient corals. It looks like did you have to go find this species or this kind of coral that you would expect to be able to overcome these hurdles? Will we'll find them in nature so because Florida's Coral Reef has already experienced a number of stressors over the last decades, Many of the calls that are out there today are already considered resilient. You know, they've already gone through stressful events, and so they're survivors for a reason, and so we can use those survivors to propagate more corals. Another method is that Me will expose these corals to different stressors or different combinations of stressors like high temperature or different diseases, find the strains that are resilient or resistant to these dressers and then propagate them. And when we out plant and restore corals, two ways that we can ensure resilience is one making sure that we put out high genetic diversity right. So we're not putting out just a few of what are considered the best or the top performers because the environment can always change. So we put out hygienic diversity. But we also put out corals and strains that we have tested in the lab, using controlled experiments to identify those strings that are resilient to the different stressors so we can make sure that we're putting out corals that have A higher chance of surviving. I'm sure you'll be keeping an eye on these out, planted corals for awhile. It's it's a term l planted ahead and heard before. What will you be looking for? So moving forward? Part of my job is a core reproduction scientist is to continue to monitor the health of the survival of the growth of our Corals as part of our restored populations also to monitor the sexual maturity of these populations. Looking at well proportioned becomes section mature over time. Are they continuing to reproduce sexually and produced the next generation of offspring every year? Also we conduct a multi species restoration. So I will apply these monitoring assessments, Teo all the species that we out plant and also monitor for other critical developmental milestones. So spawning is only one aspect of the sexual cycle. You still have to have fertilization and settlement. Meaning the larvae will settle back down onto the reef, undergo metamorphosis and develop into a coral that becomes a part of the adult population. And so every one of these aspects is critical to becoming a self sustaining population and so moving forward, I will monitor for those other critical developmental milestones. I want to bring on another coral experts so that we can talk a little more about the state of corals in 2020. Dr. Holly Putnam is an assistant professor of biology at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston. Welcome to science Friday. Hi. Thanks for having me. Good news that we're hearing out of Florida to you. Yes, I think it's fantastic news. I think in these these times any any positive news is good. And any positive news for corals is definitely great. And you think that you and other coral scientists can apply the specific method for coral populations around the world. Definitely. I think that these kinds of restoration approaches are growing in capacity, growing in scale and growing in the science based nature of them, And that's where really our work is focused in the science based nature of these two not only grow with world out in the wild but track many of these features that Hannah was talking about. To track their physiology track. The performance track the generations as they moved through, so being able to fragment corals have them grow quickly be out, planted or be housing nurseries and then l planted provides this aspect for a variety of species and a variety of locations. We've been hearing so much bad news about corals over the past few years..

time you expect to be there and I think that it pretty which was about two dollars an hour anywhere where we went you probably wouldn't have to pay for parking if you were going to a restaurant or someplace like that and you were only going to be there a limited time for most of the general kind of street parking and being near Duval Street and stuff you're you're looking at paid parking so now that we've talked about parking where are some of the great places that you want to park your vehicle and go see the first place I want to talk about was probably our favorite place that we visited and was Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and so this is an old fort a really old for it this was actually a an in use fort up until the last century and you can see how it's built you can climb around actually on quite a bit of stuff you can see the old barracks area the chapel where they would eat food all sorts of interesting things there's a junior ranger program with the State Park just like there are with all of the Florida state parks and we'll get into that a little bit more in a minute the fort also offers a lot of opportunities to get some great photographs and of course talk about this time in history and the importance of protecting those borders and what that meant during a time where a lot of traffic coming into the United States was V chips so great opportunity to learn a lot there the other wonderful thing about Fort Zachary Taylor State Park is there beach we actually liked this beach the most of the beaches that we went to but there's a few unique things that are worth knowing about it so the beach is the only natural beach in key west and what I mean by that is most of the other beaches have kind of been groomed and San has been brought in so it's nice and soft sand and you're going right into the water and that's wonderful and there's certainly a place for that what's interesting though about Zachary Taylor State Park is that the beach is still the rugged natural rocks and the experience that was the Natural Beach Florida so you have these big boulders and the and this rock that's all along there and you're kind of climbing into down into water pools in areas where the where the water's kind of shallow and it's not very deep in those spots and it's really clear and then you can go around walder's and get into some bigger bigger polls and further into the ocean the one thing to know about this is that it looks really cool and it's really neat to see a natural beach but do wanna bring river shoes so we had a different combination of shoes things like Taverna's Qian's crocs stuff like that where you can protect your feet because it is rocky and it's a little bit painful if you were in bare feet so what you want to be sure that you have some sort of water safe shoes that you can wear while you're in there flip flops because of those are going to go away as soon as the tide comes up but something that has a strap and we'll stay on your feet and the kids will be a lot happier if they have that with them the other thing is if you do WanNa beach that is kind of the white sand and just something that's soft and you don't have to worry about having river commanders beach is just up the road this is probably one of the most popular spots for weddings down and actually setting up for two weddings when we went to visit there there's just some parking along the street so as you drive up along the street to get his mother's beach you can just park right there probably if it's not super busy we were fine getting spot but it was the middle of the week I I bet on the weekends it's a little bit harder to get in there that some of the details about Fort Zachary Taylor Park Oh one of the things I wanted to mention was the arranger program for the Florida State Parks I think the Florida state parks really have a wonderful program when it comes to junior rangers they just have it set up really well and it works throughout the different parks and they're really open and up front about how you do the different things and all the components that you can get and so what I mean by that is there's ah core packet that the kids complete for the basic junior ranger badge and I mean it's not basic it's one of the really nice plastic badges similar to the ones you get at the channel parks but there's also different packets that they have that are related to four different sections so they have natural resources cultural resources recreation and service and each of those have their own packets and by packets I mean they're like eight to ten page colored packets that are put together the kids work through and do different activities and if they complete enough of the activities in these four supplemental packets then they can earn a pen and my kids didn't do the pin but they went all the way to the badge if they do three activities in each of those four section ends than they earn a badge and this is a full heavy duty badge that you can stitch onto a junior ranger Jacket or an archaic on our quilts that were we do for the girls it's really cool that Florida has all this setup for their junior ranger program and when you go into Fort Zachary Taylor and you pay at the entrance fee and by the way I think the cost was like three dollars the car just ask the ranger then that you have some junior rangers in the car and they will give you the packets to get started and if you're spending time and Florida which you are if you drove down there in your RV then you will have plenty of time to go to at least three different parks and complete a lot of the activities and get away to a badge so that some of the details about for its Acura Taylor State Park for sure add that on your list of things to see the next thing that we really enjoyed was the echo discovery center and this is actually you can actually see it from the entrance of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park it's just kind of across the street there's actually a playground right between the two so you can stop there and play but the echo discovery center is basically kind of like an Mariam they have a big reef tank and then they have a bunch of interactive displays where there's educational information about the reefs and about ocean life and exploring the ocean there's areas where kids can climb into things they can touch things here things very interactive I think the center in general about six thousand square feet so it's not small by any means and it's free that's the best part it's free now of course anytime when you have a place that's free it doesn't hurt to go to the bookstore and maybe look at a few things and see if there's anything that interests you because that of course helps keep them in business one or the other the things that was going on while we were there they had a special lion fish display and they had somebody talking about the lion fish is an invasive species in Florida and and after my girls heard about this you know the typical environmentalists that my little six seven year old are they were set on spotting the lion fish and reporting the lion fish and saving the day so the rest of our trip they every time they were in the reef they were looking for the lion fish so they could report him try to get them out of the Florida waters so really cute they did a great job of of making it interesting for the kids and including them in that so great place if you're wanting something educational another place to visit not necessarily so educational but still exciting is the southernmost point so this is they claim the southern most point in the united states and there's this huge concrete pillar it's been painted red and black and yellow and you've probably seen pictures of people who have taken their picture here and we're one of them so you kind of wait in line and it took US maybe thirty minutes or so to wait in the line for our chance to get our picture at the front the Nice thing is about waiting in line is you can look at some of the houses that are nearby and see kind of the details of the the buildings and what was important in the infrastructure and talk about that with your kids and we also Kinda got to meet the people that were in front of us and behind us and had them take our picture when it came time for us to get up to the point so we were able to chat with some people and somebody was selling some coconut water so they were just drilling the hole in the coconut pudding Straw in there and the kids loved having a coconut water that was something they've never experienced in Colorado as you can imagine so that was a fun thing to do and of course that's free because it's just outside the next two things I wanted to mention are things that we actually skipped we didn't bother doing and I'll tell you why but it's something that a lot of people do go to see and that's the Hemingway house and the Audubon House so the Hemingway House of course is where Ernest Hemingway lived and it it's basically his this is a famous square it's actually right along the coast on the Gulf of Mexico side and their street performers that are here at night and.
