Regional Practitioners Network
The Coral Restoration Consortium hosts several Regional Practitioner Networks (RPNs) around the world to encourage shared learning among individuals, elevate practitioner voices, and share local success to a global audience.
RPNs are led by community members in a given region and are structured to be a collaborative forum between practitioners, researchers, and resource managers working to advance restoration implementation in their local areas. Although based on the GCRNM classification of ecological regions, we recognize that local-context in restoration efforts plays a heavy role in success, therefor the size, goals, and management of RPNs are variable and designed to suite needs of a given restoration hot-spot.
The CRC is actively seeking to bolster regional practices and to be an advocate and resource for those working to implement scalable restoration efforts in their region. We believe that there is an immense amount of local knowledge among local practitioners and that together, as a collective, we can work to exchange that knowledge among and between the restoration community of practice.
