Scaling-up Efforts to Rehabilitate Threatened Coral Communities Using Recruits Reared from Wild-caught Gametes

Brief Description:
Developing a tile that can be seeded with coral recruits and quickly and cheaply reintroduced to degraded reefs. The tile designs will be tested in a field setting with various coral species and under different environmental conditions. This is a long-term rearing of this critically endangered coral species,and shows that early outplanting of sexually reared coral settlers can be more cost-effective than the traditional approach of nursery rearing for restoration efforts aimed at rehabilitating coral populations.This a BEST 2 initiative project.

Desarrollar una loseta que se pueda sembrar con reclutas de coral y reintroducir rápida y económicamente en arrecifes degradados. Los diseños de los azulejos se probarán en un entorno de campo con varias especies de coral y en diferentes condiciones ambientales. Esta es una cría a largo plazo de esta especie de coral en peligro crítico de extinción, y muestra que la plantación temprana de colonos de coral criados sexualmente puede ser más rentable que el enfoque tradicional de crianza en viveros para los esfuerzos de restauración destinados a rehabilitar las poblaciones de coral. proyecto de la iniciativa BEST 2.
