Caribbean Coral Rescue in the Face of Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease: An Introduction.

The Caribbean Cooperation Team of Florida’s response to stony coral tissue loss disease (SCTLD), and MPAConnect, are pleased to invite you to join a webinar, “Caribbean Coral Rescue in the Face of Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease: An Introduction” to be held on Monday, March 14th from 12:00pm to 2:00pm Eastern Time.

Efforts to rescue corals from reefs affected by SCTLD are being implemented in Florida and the wider Caribbean to support the future restoration of coral reef ecosystems as part of multifaceted responses to local disease outbreaks. We invite everyone working to combat the threat of SCTLD on their reefs to come and hear about these efforts as you consider whether or not coral reef rescue is an approach you wish to include in your SCTLD response efforts. 

Please join us and be prepared to ask questions and share your ideas and ambitions for coral rescue.

The workshop is being organized through the Caribbean Cooperation Team of the Florida SCTLD response effort and is being hosted by NOAAs Coral Reef Conservation Program, AGRRA and GCFI/MPAConnect.

This interactive workshop is being designed for all those who need to decide how to respond to SCTLD and are planning how to intervene or treat corals sickened by this deadly disease.

Simultaneous translation will be provided (English, Spanish, French).

Pre-Registration is not required.
