Close your eyes for a moment and picture yourself diving into the tropical world of corals and fish right off the coast of New South Wales. Sounds like a dream? Well, it’s not a dream anymore, climate change causes tropical fish to move south and entire marine ecosystems to change.
Our guest studies the changes happening right off our doorstep. And she certainly came across some interesting findings. Tim and Cat chat to Shannen Smith, PhD student at UNSW in Sydney.
