Coral Reef Conservation and Restoration in Guam

To restore coral reefs in Guam

 

In collaboration with the University of Guam (UOG) Marine Lab, Underwater World Guam, the Government of Guam, Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, SECORE started a multi-year coral conservation programme on Guam in 2013.

 

The project focuses on restoring and protecting coral species of local concern. Additionally, field training workshops are hosted at the project location.

The UOG Marine Laboratory has a long record of coral reproduction research. In collaboration with universities of the Netherlands, Guam, Germany and Singapore, SECORE is conducting an over-regional research approach to develop new techniques for large-scale coral reef restoration. One project is carried out at the UOG Marine Laboratory and a corresponding project takes place in Curacao.

 

WAZA Conservation Project 13004 is implemented by a consortium consisting of the SECORE Foundation, Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, Underwater World Guam, University of Guam, Nanyang Technological University Singapore and Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. The project is supported by Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, Underwater World Guam, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Horniman Museum and Steinhart Aquarium. Other stakeholders involved in the project include the University of Guam, Nanyang Technological University Singapore and Micronesian Divers Association.
