SeaKeepers Katie Sheahan is Published in Springer Magazine

In December, SeaKeeper's Citizen Science Manager, Katie Sheahan had her study published in Springer Magazine. This study examined whether it is possible to transfer algae that live inside certain sea creatures (called "Cnidarians") to Cnidarians that have lost their algae due to changes in ocean temperature. The researchers found that Cnidarians that had lost their algae were able to get it back from healthy Cnidarians of the same species, but it was not clear if they could get it back from Cnidarians of a different species. This information could help with efforts to restore coral reefs that have been damaged by changes in ocean temperature.
