Futureproof Extra: Sounds of the Coral Reef

Here on Futureproof, we have been longstanding supporters of 'FameLab' - the world's leading science communication competition that spans over 30 countries - putting scientists on stage to talk about a particular idea or area of study.

With just their wits and a couple of props, the top newest voices in science, technology, engineering and maths from across Ireland will give 3 minute talks on always fascinating, sometimes bizarre science concepts - the final of which will be taking place tomorrow, Wednesday 15 April and will be live streamed here from 6pm.

One of the winners from the international competition last year was Tim Gordon, a marine biologist from the University of Exeter.

He joined Jonathan to discuss his work which looks at the current health of coral reefs, what we can do to protect them, and discuss what the changing sounds of coral reefs can tell us about our impact on them.
