Our Research

The ReFuGe 2020 consortium came together to address the gap in current knowledge of coral resilience and adaptive capacity. Bridging this knowledge gap is critical for reef managers who want to maintain the diversity and function of coral reefs and need to develop and implement innovative management approaches in order to do this.

The consortium draws on national and international expertise from reef management, and the coral reef, medical, agricultural and terrestrial genomics fields.
