On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, science writer Juli Berwald discusses her new book, Life on the Rocks: Building a Future for Coral Reefs.

Coral reefs are in the middle of an unprecedented die-off, threatened by warming oceans, pollution, damage by humans, and a devastating pandemic. High seawater temperatures have already damaged 75 percent of the reef-building corals in the world. What's being done to save these evolutionary marvels?
