Aquarium Protection of Climate Resilient Corals Workshop Report

Report from a Workshop Co-Convened by The Phoenix Islands Protected Area (PIPA) Trust, The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, The Aquarium of the Pacific

In December 2018 the Aquarium of the Pacific partnered with the Phoenix Island Protected Area Trust and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to host a workshop on super corals with coral experts from around the world, including representatives from Pacific Island nations. Super corals are defined as those that have demonstrated the ability to tolerate or recover from stress and successfully reproduce after a stressor, such as ocean warming. A report on the workshop’s proceedings and resulting plans for identifying, acquiring, and propagating super corals in partnership with public aquariums is now available.
