The Coral Restoration Consortium (CRC) is a community of practice comprised of scientists, managers, coral restoration practitioners, and educators dedicated to enabling coral reef ecosystems to survive the 21st century and beyond.

The CRC’s mission is to foster collaboration and technology transfer among participants, and to facilitate scientific and practical ingenuity to demonstrate that restoration can achieve meaningful results at scales relevant to reefs in their roles of protecting coastlines, supporting fisheries, and serving as economic engines for coastal communities.

To help increase the scale and efficiency of coral restoration, the Coral Restoration Consortium (CRC) will focus on the following topical priorities for the next three to five years. For each priority, a dedicated Working Group is being formed to develop solutions-oriented action plans and to help establish best management practices.
