I am happy to announce that after a few months my TedEd talk on coral reef connectivity in Fiji is now published, and you can see the results here. I am amazed at how the animator was able to take my words and really help to drive the point home.
I’m particularly excited about this because it is a great example of how complex science can be communicated in a broad fashion without losing the salient points. The work that this talk was based on was published in PLOS One, and while I do think we did a good job on that paper, the work is rather technical. By coupling this paper with an accompanying outreach piece, I hope we are really going to get the most conservation mileage out of this paper.
The people at TedEd are actively soliciting lessons from other researchers, so if you have a good story that you think has an engaging narrative and a succinct story drop them a line.
