Remembering Marine Biology Giant Ruth Gates

Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology

The world of Marine science is morning one of its own. Ruth Gates lost her battle with brain cancer last week. She was the director of the Hawaii Institute of Biology and was a champion of coral reefs.

She appeared on The Conversation last Spring talking about the need to take drastic action to protect our reefs.

Catherine Cruz is the host of The Conversation. Originally from Guam, she spent more than 30 years at KITV, covering beats from government to education. Contact her at
