|About||Resources for coral reef managers and coral reef enthusiasts that are working to reduce the impact of climate change and other killer threats.|
|Mission||The Reef Resilience Team of The Nature Conservancy brings scientists, reef managers and resource user groups together to develop strategies to improve the health of our world's coral reefs and enhance the economic sustainability of reef-dependent commercial enterprises.|
We all have a shared responsibility to protect our oceans: to use only what we need, make smarter choices about what we use, and pass on healthy oceans that will continue to support future generations.
Coral reef resilience is ultimately about coral reef health. Having a healthy ‘immune system’ helps coral communities withstand major stress events such as warming seas and recover rapidly from them. Building resilience into reef management means helping to build this immune system, and increasing the likelihood that coral communities will continue to thrive.
Reef Resilience Toolkit version 3.2
This toolkit addresses the questions asked by reef managers pondering what they can do at the local scale to reduce the impacts of global climate change. Solutions involve both daily management activities and planning for change. Uncertainty is what makes our current situation most challenging. However, it is possible to build flexibility and adaptability strategies to respond to unanticipated changes and events.
