11th International Coral Reef Symposium

Postby Mary Luna » Tue Feb 26, 2008 1:04 pm

The 11th International Coral Reef Symposium will be held July 7-11, 2008, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL USA. The Symposium is co-hosted by the United States and Florida. Stakeholders, including reef scientists, managers, conservationists, and students will find an opportunity at the 11th ICRS to assimilate the most recent and best scientific information available about these precious and irreplaceable natural resources. The Symposium’s goal is better understanding of coral reef ecosystems and consequently more effective conservation and management strategies. The Symposium will promote the dissemination of knowledge about reef sustainability and resilience, which is particularly important to many nations that depend upon coral reefs for their economy and food supply. The South Florida venue will also provide convenient access for participants to visit and study reef systems in the Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and Mesoamerica. Over 2,500 attendees are expected from the international marine science, management, and conservation communities.
