Headed to the Reef Futures symposium in the Florida Keys next week? 

If you are, please join us for:

Managers Meet & Greet Monday, Dec. 10 5:30 – 7:00 pm at Palm Court (adjacent to the Beach Bar). This event is to provide you (folks who work to manage reefs) an opportunity to connect with others from around the globe. It will be a chance to mingle, and we’ll share a little information about manager-related events taking place at Reef Futures and the new CRC Management Working Group.

Reef Managers Lunch where managers can contribute to the development of the Coral Reef Consortium Management Working Group. We will collectively brainstorm and prioritize challenges to be tackled in this working group as well as next steps to move efforts forward. Learn more.

We’ll also be at the TNC booth Wednesday night (5-7pm) – please stop by to say hello!

 

For those who will not be in attendance, we’ll bring the coral restoration symposium to you! We will be live-streaming – via our Facebook page – two sessions:

Dec. 11, 3:45 – 5:15 PM (EST)
Community Engagement in Restoration Implementation session will focus on harnessing communities to engage in restoration activities. Check out the speaker line-up

Dec. 13, 9:45 AM – 12:00 PM (EST)
