Larger is Better

I propose to implement the first stage of a Colombian Large-scale Reef Restoration Program (LRRP). The Program will scale up national restoration efforts, changing the magnitude of transplantation from hundreds to thousands of fragments over substantially increased areas. Such a change in scale will promote the natural recovery and resilience of the reefs in Colombia. The program and its results will complement passive conservation strategies and, together, overcome critical local and regional challenges in the marine realm, while serving as a model for implementation to the wider region.

Status: In progress
Launch Date: October 2016
Organization & Location: Corales de Paz, Colombia
Keywords: Restoration, Coral gardening, Capacity development, Research
