CORAL RESTORATION MONITORING

IMG_4825.jpg

Monitoring coral restoration efforts is essential to promote effective restoration techniques and to quantify success. In this working group, we ask the following questions. How do we efficiently scale up restoration monitoring? What are the data needed to determine success (or failure) of restoration efforts? 

 

The working group’s Core Team is led by Chair Phanor Montoya Maya (Coral Restoration Foundation).

REEFhabilitation PORTAL

The REEFhabilitation Portal is an open-access, online database where coral reef restoration practitioners can collect, visualize, and share their coral reef restoration monitoring data. Portal users can create accounts and access a private user dashboard where they can register restoration projects and sites and input monitoring data for coral nurseries and restoration sites. In addition to storing restoration data and photos, the Portal conducts automated data analysis, creates line and bar charts, and provides downloadable data tables. Users can grant access to other Portal members to serve as contributors to their projects to upload monitoring data on their behalf, including tourism operators that wish to invite tourist citizen scientists to collect and contribute monitoring data and photos to their projects. Portal users can also choose to make their data public, private, or share their data only with specified portal members. The REEFhabilitation Portal is a partnership between The Nature Conservancy, the Booking Cares Fund, and the Coral Restoration Consortium.
