Sharing Solutions to Build Resilience into Coral Reefs Around the World
In 2012, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) expanded a plan to spread an innovative new strategy developed by Dr. Rod Salm of The Nature Conservancy called a Resilience Model to help define and frame resilience in an easily understandable way. This model has evolved over time and continues to be refined.
To reach and influence a critical audience of Marine Park Area managers, the TNC developed a Reef Resilience Toolkit that resides on the Internet and is filled with cutting-edge science and lessons learned at similar projects worldwide. Over the next decade they provided the Resilience Toolkit to 75 percent of marine protected areas in Asia’s “Coral Triangle” and 60 percent of other reef areas globally in order to disseminate tools for use in the field as broadly as possible.
The program continues share the latest innovations and discoveries in the science of coral reef conservation with those who are in charge of Marine Protected Areas globally.
