Dear  Coral List 

TFI Learning's Coral Reef Restoration: Scientific Frameworks for
Rehabilitation conference
is taking place October 18-19, 2005 at the University of Miami James L.
International Center in Miami, Florida.  This event will bring together
scientists, researchers,
government officials, ecologists, resource managers and coral reef
professionals to share the most up-to-date strategies and information on the
coral reef 
rehabilitation process.


*	Explore critical issues in managing reef ecosystems 

*	Assess aesthetic components of ecological restoration 

*	Analyze the role of  technology transfer on the rehabilitation

*	Examine applied experimental ecology 

*	Gain new ideas from practical restoration case studies 

*	Determine how much compensatory restoration is necessary 

*	Analyze the benefits of a cooperative Natural Resources Damage

*	Examine ethical dilemmas in coral reef restoration 


This event will offer a conceptual framework on reef assessment and
restoration. It will assist
Scientists and Resource Managers in the decision making process from initial
assessment of the
injury through conceptual restoration design, implementation and monitoring.
Participants will 
benefit from an integrated, multidisciplinary approach that encompasses
engineering, geological, 
biological and socioeconomic factors. The conference will be a unique
opportunity to exchange 
information and learn from practical case studies on the challenges of a
coral reef rehabilitation
