About This Project

The Poor Knights Islands, New Zealand reef communities have been exposed to warmer than average temperatures over the past 30 years. Dramatic changes in temperature stress coral, making them more susceptible to diseases and invasive species. The goal of this project is to identify the coral, diseases and invasive species present and the maturity stages at sites throughout the Islands. This will allow us to add knowledge about the state of the reef and compare them to other global ecosystems.
