Florida Reef Resilience Conference 2008: Resilience Strategies

Created: 6/19/2008 -


The final session of the conference involved participants working in small groups to develop ideas that coral reef managers and users could employ to protect the region's reefs from the threats of climate change. Each of six groups discussed a set of strategies and ranked those they considered most useful. This is the total list and rankings of all the strategies.  Conference planners hope this list of strategies, developed by reef managers, anglers, conservationists, dive operators, students and public officials will broaden the discussion about how to protect reefs.
