Effective solutions to the climate challenge threatening the world’s coral reefs require complex decisions about risk and uncertainty, timing, quality versus quantity as well as which species to support for the most robust and productive future, according to a science paper released today.
The Morrison Government today launched the research and development phase of its world leading Reef Restoration and Adaptation science Program to help preserve and restore the Great Barrier Reef in the face of rising ocean temperatures and coral bleaching.
Researchers are looking to harness the Great Barrier Reef’s massive size, to help it resist and recover from the impacts of climate change - such as coral bleaching and increasingly frequent and severe weather events.
Engaging the hearts and minds of Australians in reef restoration, finding the large amounts of money needed, and developing sophisticated modelling tools to guide decisions, will be explored at the international Great Barrier Reef Restoration Symposium, in Cairns today.
Experts will today provide a fascinating deep dive into the reef restoration innovations under investigation to help preserve and restore the Great Barrier Reef, at the international Great Barrier Reef Restoration Symposium, in Cairns.
Innovative ways to preserve and restore the Great Barrier Reef will be the focus of the international Great Barrier Reef Restoration Symposium, beginning tomorrow in Cairns.
