CORAL REEF FUTURES
The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the Australian Academy of Sciences will co-sponsored two important events in the Shine Dome, Canberra Australia, on October 18-19th: A 2-day symposium and an evening public event on the 18th chaired by Robyn Williams, from ABC's The Science Show. The symposium is aimed at a general audience of scientists in diverse fields, natural resource managers, conservationists, and policy makers. The evening event is designed for the general public, teachers and school children (older than about 10). Our objective is to present (to a general audience) the latest science which supports the sustainable management of coral reefs, in Australia, our region, and globally. Key issues will include climate change, ocean acidification, fisheries management, conservation planning, capacity building, ecosystem-based management and adaptive governance.
