63. Aurora Ricart, PhD: Corals, Seagrasses, and Combating Climate Change
Marine ecologist Aurora Ricart joins us on the show today. Aurora is a seagrass biologist studying the effects of this often overlooked part of our oceanic ecosystem.

Today we chat about her amazing coral research in Mexico, how seagrasses combat climate change, and how you play a role in this underwater nursery.
