Many of you have followed the daily update of the SECORE workshop in
Rico, Aug 1 to 8 on our weblog and we thank you for your interest. The
of the workshop was to share knowledge about coral conservation and
breeding by applying hands-on techniques in the field.

In the mean time all 20 workshop participants returned home safely. If
are curious about how many larvae of the Elkhorn coral (Acropora
palmata) they took home, please check the weblog at www.secore.org. The
larvae will
be used for further research on sexual coral reproducion and for the
establishment of a captive breeding population of Acropora palmata.

Besides the success in improving our coral larvae rearing techniques,
weblog will also inform you about the major breakthrough we
accomplished in
the cryopreservation of Elkhorn coral sperm. It also contains abstracts
the lectures given during the workshop.
