  • Wing hosts Ocean Youth Ambassador program

    Ocean Youth Ambassador program is for young people aged 13-25 who are keen on marine science and conservation. The program includes guest lectures, mentoring, lab visits and a citizen science project. During the program, the ambassadors learn the challenges our ocean faces and make positive actions in conservation. They develop and presented their community engagement projects in the annual Ocean Youth Pitch Fest and execute their ideas in local schools and communities.

  • Justin Maire et al. 2021 paper in ISME J shows algal symbionts of corals harbour intracellular bacteria

    The ability of corals to build and sustain reefs is supported by tiny intracellular algae that live inside the cells lining their gut.

    Our new research, published in the International Society for Microbial Ecology Journal, has found that these microalgae also have their own internal symbionts – that is, bacteria living inside their cells.

    This study was co-authored with Sam Girvan, Sophie Barkla, Dr Alexis Perez-Gonzalez and Professor Linda Blackall from the University of Melbourne, and Professor David Suggett from the University of Technology, Sydney.
