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.
Knight International Center in Miami, Florida.  This event will bring
scientists, researchers, government officials, ecologists, resource
managers and coral reef
restoration 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 project.
