Description

The goal of the project is to implement active coral population enhancement, in an effort to build resilience in and promote the survival and recovery of protected coral species in the park. Project objectives include
increasing the abundance, density, and genotypic diversity of target species, thereby restoring reef community composition and ecosystem function. Enhancement will encompass multiple methods, including but not limited to:

  • Reattaching wild coral colonies and fragments found detached from the reef substrate
  • Propagating and outplanting coral tissue derived from wild and/or nursery-reared corals
  • Collection of coral gametes during annual spawning events, followed by larval propagation, settlement,
    and outplanting
