Cool Stuff Coming Soon!
Sep 18, 2018 | Restoration in the Age of Disease
As Florida faces an unprecedented disease outbreak involving more than half of its coral species, many restoration practitioners and environmental managers are wondering how best to responsibly continue restoration efforts for both affected and unaffected species in the face of disease. Scientists at Mote Marine Laboratory and Nova Southeastern University discuss their plans for adapting restoration to help answer disease-related questions and prepare for future restoration efforts. This Coral Restoration Consortium webinar features three presentations followed by a panel Q&A session. This webinar series is co-hosted by the Coral Restoration Consortium and the Reef Resilience Network.
February 14, 2018 | Building Restoration Programs to Withstand Hurricanes_ Lessons Learned from Irma and Maria
As coral restoration programs are developed, a great deal of thought goes into site selection and design of nurseries and outplant sites to ensure success. Until this past summer, one of the considerations, “can our sites withstand a direct hit from a hurricane” has been mostly theoretical. Hear experts from Florida and the Caribbean discuss impacts from hurricanes Irma and Maria, what worked and what didn’t, and what they will do in the future to mitigate impacts both to coral nurseries and outplant sites. This Coral Restoration Consortium webinar features six presentations followed by a panel Q&A session. Speakers include: Kemit-Amon Lewis, Shannon Gore, Sean Griffin, Kerry Maxwell, Jessica Levy, and Dalton Hesley. View the webinar presentations. This webinar series is co-hosted by the Coral Restoration Consortium and the Reef Resilience Network.
