"Extinction Event": The Decline of Caribbean Coral Reef Ecosystems
 

The Caribbean is home to 9 percent of the world's coral reefs, but only around one-sixth of the original coral cover remains. The reefs are vital to the region's economy and recent studies have suggested that in a "business as usual" model, these ecosystems will suffer a complete collapse in this region within 25 years. The good news: coral reefs are extremely resilient, and in areas where protective measures have been put in place, the rate of recovery has matched the rate of decline. Join Jim Hewlett, FLCC Biology Professor, to learn more about the sources of stress and examples where protections have been successful. 

 

The presentation is free, and light refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited and reservations are required - call or email to hold your space.
