    Hawaii's Dangerous Sea Creature

    Hawaii's Dangerous Sea Creature

    If I told you a translucent blob with long flowing ribbon-like tentacles could kill you would you believe me? A sting from a Chironex Fleckeri Box Jellyfish can stop your heart in just five minutes but it looks harmless. That species of jellyfish isn't in Hawaii, but it's cousin the Alatina Box Jellyfish is. University of Hawaii Manoa Researcher Angel Yanagihara has been studying Box Jellyfish for two decades.  She became interested in the jellyfish after falling victim to its sting. She shares her story Wavelengths.

    Super Coral: Getting Ahead of Climate Change

    On a tiny piece of land in the middle of Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii a group of scientists is working hard to save coral reefs. It's a multi-layered project using several approaches to train and modify coral so it can survive heat stress. The project is led by Dr. Ruth Gates and gained momentum after Hawaii's coral bleaching events in 2014 and 2015.

    A huge Mahalo to the team at the Gates Coral Lab for taking the time to share your work with Wavelengths Ocean Podcast. You can learn more about their work at wavelengthsoceanpodcast.com
