Emma is a coral biologist and explorer focused on identifying the world’s most extreme coral systems and studying these ‘Super Corals’ to generate new strategies for coral reefs struggling to survive climate change. She pioneered the discovery of Super Corals surviving in mangrove lagoons, where conditions are hot, acidic and have low oxygen environments – the trio of stressors corals are having to survive under climate change. Emma has undertaken over 30 research expeditions, supervising and mentoring over 25 research students to develop the next generation of scientists. She established the Coral Nurture Program in 2018, the first science-tourism stewardship program for the Great Barrier Reef, that to date, has repopulated over 100,000 corals at high-value reef sites
