Sea Urchins and Underwater Forests

Wednesday 24th April / presented by Fiona Bartholomaeus

We hear lots of stories about the underwater environment being damaged by coral bleaching or global warming, but what about by the animals themselves?

Research has found that the underwater forests are endangered because of the Sea Urchin. With less predators around to scare them away, the Sea Urchins are grazing on the forests more than they should be.

Albert Pessarrodona from University of Western Australia's Oceans Institute joined us to tell us more.
