Help a Researcher Out! With coral reefs increasingly suffering under the climate crisis, Kath Whittey (Cardiff University) is working on creating Fish Hives - artificial reef structures that can help rebuild damaged reefs. She needs your help to build and test the Fish Hives.

Join Itziar Burgués as she talks about her work on the reproduction of Rapa Nui corals - and how it has helped them survive.
