This week on Women on the Line we’re going to be looking at climate issues, specifically coral bleaching in Australia. Listeners may have heard the news which has emerged in the last few weeks that on average 35% of the coral across the Great Barrier Reef is dead or dying. To take a closer look at this phenomenon, first we’ll speak with Dr Mia Hoogenboom from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies about what’s happening on the Great Barrier Reef, and then we’ll cross the country to speak with her colleague Dr Verena Schoepf who will discuss the situation on coral reefs in Western Australia.
