   Restoring the Resilience of Caribbean Coral Reefs by Jeremy Jackson of the
   Smithsonian Institution and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Dr.
   Jackson will present on the new report Status and Trends of Caribbean Coral
   Reefs: 1970-2012. The report is a result of a three-year joint effort of the
   International Coral Reef Initiativeâs (ICRI) Global Coral Reef Monitoring
   Network (GCRMN), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature
   (IUCN), and the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). It is the
   most detailed and comprehensive study of its kind published to date and is
   the result of the work of nearly 200 experts over the course of three years.
   Average Caribbean coral cover declined by half but varies greatly among
   locations  with some sites showing little or no decline. The principal
   drivers of reef degradation so far have been local impacts of overfishing
   and coastal development that are potentially reversible by local action.
   Banning destructive fishing and strengthening coastal zone management would
   increase resilience of Caribbean reefs to the inevitable future impacts of
   climate change. Download the report at
