All delegates at ICRS in Hawaii next week are invited to attend our evening forum:


When: 7:30PM to 9:30pm, Wednesday 22nd June
Where: Room 308AB, Hawaii Convention Center

Hosts: Hugh Possingham (The Nature Conservancy, University of Queensland), Ken Anthony and Aaron MacNeil (Australian Institute of Marine Science)

Panel:  Peter Kareiva (UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability), Ove Hoegh-Guldberg (Global Change Institute), Kirsten Oleson (University of Hawaii), Ben Halpern (UCSB), David Wachenfeld (Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority), Lizzie McLeod (The Nature Conservancy), John Pandolfi (University of Queensland) and David Obura (CORDIO)
Special guest: Bruce Anderson, Chief, Division of Aquatic Resources, DLNR, Hawaii
We invite you to help us tackle the most pressing challenges facing coral reef managers and policy makers worldwide:

-          Will conservation and management matter if climate change kills coral reefs anyway?

-          Can we really balance environmental, economic and social objectives?

-          Should we sacrifice some reefs to protect others?

-          What do managers need from scientists to make better decisions?

-          When do we say yes to genetically modified corals and fish?

-          What will it take to sustain healthy coral reefs in the 21st century and beyond?

Looking forward to an exciting evening with heated and productive discussions.
