There is an immediate and strategic need to better administer to our oceans’ health, coral reefs, and coastal environments. The goal is to make the objectives conversational and viewable so everyone “young and old, near and far” can address these marine concerns in a meaningful and objective manner. As believers in evidence-based science, we share the framework necessary to provide better data-driven decisions.
All projects utilize programs developed for and are built around an ESRI Geographic Information System (GIS) database that embeds ecosystem services into stakeholder-driven planning processes.
In order to better administer to the health of our oceans and to share our GIS knowledge with other like-minded organizations, The World Federation for Coral Reef Conservation (WFCRC), is offering limited GIS support for individuals and organizations, whose goals of coral and coastal conservation aligns with our strategy. Everyone is invited to submit observations and be part of the solution.
We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals SDG14 (Life Below Water) & SDG17 (Partnership for the Goals) with Voluntary Commitments since 2018 and continue to do so.
The R.E.E.F.S (Research Enhancement Engineering for Seascapes) Program is a global partnership supported by Mission Blue, local stakeholders, marine biologists, coral experts, and MPA managers in project locations to address key monitoring knowledge gaps in our understanding and sharing the science behind a need for immediate action and 1st response plans.
These issues require site-specific attention to maintain current levels of a reef presence and to prevent future decline and need to be executed in the necessary time frame.
The need to provide this information for decision-makers to promote needed actions for sustainable reef conservation is now and is necessary to advance the understanding, use, and conservation of coral reefs through an integrated program of excellence in data gathering/sharing, education, and outreach built upon active and long term partnerships with divers, conservationist, the science community and local island governments. To share this information on a broad spectrum will give decision-makers the knowledge necessary to make better data-driven decisions.
