The Field-Based Propagation Working Group explores ways to promote increases in restoration efficiency by identifying actionable ways to scale-up in situ propagation and outplanting efforts. This group concentrates on 1) synthesizing existing restoration resources, 2) promoting conversations between restoration practitioners, and 3) acts as a resource for emerging restoration practitioners to openly share ideas to advance efforts.
The Coral Restoration Consortium steering committee and working group members have defined the following priorities for this group:
Update best practices manual for field nursery propagation and outplanting efforts.
Identify the science needed to support scaling up efforts.
Assist in the development and implementation of t ideas for increasing outplanting efficiency.
Create opportunities to openly share ideas between restoration practitioners.
WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON
A Field-based Guide to Coral Propagation and Outplanting which addresses questions such as How do I choose a nursery site? What structures are best-suited for my nursery type?
Restoration Around the World webinar series is being developed to showcase field-based restoration efforts unique to different geographic regions.
