Who better to tell the secrets of the sea than marine animals? In this children’s educational podcast program, the corals Mille (Millepora alcicornis) and Mussi (Mussismilia harttii) receive a unique recorder and become reporters. They talk about the reef environment’s day-to-day life with their friends and other marine animals who live on the Porto de Galinhas beach in the municipality of Ipojuca, in Pernambuco.
Um Mar de Histórias (A Sea of Stories) is an initiative by students from the Radio, TV and Internet and Design courses at the Federal University of Pernambuco. The project also counts on the collaboration of teachers, students and professionals from other areas, such as biology, ecology, communication and computer science. The team is part of the Coral Biofactory, a project by the Luiz Accioly Enzymology Laboratory (LABENZ) from the Department of Biochemistry at UFPE, which aims to generate products, goods and processes for the conservation of Brazilian corals.
