White As Snow: Wavelengths Ocean Podcast Episode 2

Something happened to one of my favorite places this year.

This week (December 19th) on Wavelengths I take you to the island of Guam where coral bleaching impacted the reefs four times in the last five years.

Special thanks to Corri Gobin whose photography inspired this episode.
