Program Description

What is the Florida Reef Resilience Program?


The Florida Reef Resilience Program brings scientists, reef managers, and the people whose livelihoods and recreational pursuits depend upon healthy coral reefs together to achieve a common goal.  The program is designed to improve our collective understanding of coral reef resilience by exploring the biological and environmental aspects of reef health and by asking a fundamental question of society: “What is it that people want and need from coral reefs?

Ultimately, the Florida Reef Resilience Program seeks to develop strategies to improve the health of Florida’s reefs and to enhance the sustainability of reef-dependent commercial and recreational enterprises.
