dc.description.abstract We anticipate that conventional management approaches will be insufficient to protect coral reefs, even if global warming is limited to 1.5 degrees C. Emerging technologies are needed to stem the decline of these natural assets. Since 2014, coral reefs worldwide have been subjected to the most extensive, prolonged and damaging heatwave in recorded history. Large sections of Australia¿s Great Barrier Reef (GBR) bleached in response to heat stress in 2016 and 2017 ¿ the first back-to-back events on record. Such severe coral bleaching results in widespread loss of reef habitat and biodiversity. Globally, we are facing catastrophic decline of these ecosystems, which sustain services valued at around $US10 trillion per year2, are home to over a million species, and feed and support the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people.
