Coral Reef Restoration and Aquaculture
Coral reefs are one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth and act as carbon sinks allowing the reduction of the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, thus playing an important role in climate dynamics. Today many coral reef systems are in a state of decline and therefore protecting and repopulating damaged reefs is an important component of coral reef conservation. From a local to global perspective students in this course will review the major threats to coral reef ecosystems and seek solutions to these threats by exploring the role of artificial reefs, marine protected areas and aquaculture in the restoration of coral reefs.
