About this episode

Coastal environments have immense ecological, practical, recreational and cultural value, and are under threat from multiple natural and anthropogenic stressors. Dr Brian Glazer and his team at the University of Hawai’i use specialised equipment to conduct remote coastal ‘health checks’ (smartcoastlines.org). They are also working to put the data directly into the hands of the public to encourage community-based management initiatives.
