"This photo is part of a programme I am carrying out with UNESCO:1 OCEAN," says photographer Alexis Rosenfeld. "This is scientific diver / biologist, Yann Lacube, from CRIOBE who works on CNRS researcher Laetitia Hedouin's team. The team works on corals that are resistant to global warming. Here Lacube is selecting a coral that is undergoing a bleaching episode."
