The main priorities of this group are to develop guidelines and gather concrete quantitative evidence that coral restoration can be a viable and long-term strategy for restoring the ecosystem services associated with coral reefs, especially with regards to coastal protection, fisheries, tourism and biodiversity conservation. Guidelines will be developed to help practitioners implement successful coral restoration projects and to encourage the use of standard monitoring metrics so that comparisons can be made between sites.

 

What We’re Working On

  • Developed an annual operating plan for 2018.
  • Defining success criteria and metrics, and collating example of two types of coral restoration demonstration projects – ecological function and coastal protection.
  • The Coastal protection subgroup attended a coastal resilience and protection symposium.
  • Developing a series of story maps based on different demonstration projects.
