Coral reef experts to present latest coral reef science during July symposium
Date:6/7/2012

The 12th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS 2012), the world's leading coral reef science conference held once every four years, will begin Monday, July 9, in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. The symposium will bring together 2,000 international scientists, policy makers, managers, and conservationists to present the latest findings on coral reef science and management. To share the knowledge and findings presented during the symposium, daily media briefings will be held for reporters who are in attendance, and accessibility to this information and to coral experts will be provided through an online media portal to journalists worldwide. In addition, journalists will be given daily updates on the groundbreaking presentations in science and management of coral reefs.

The current line-up of daily media briefings, which will include presentations and discussion by scientists and experts in the featured topic areas, follows. Please note: The following media briefing topics are confirmed but actual briefing titles, times and presenters will be announced at a later date. Additional media briefings may also be added.

Monday, July 9

The State of Coral Reefs: Leading coral experts present an overview of the state of coral reefs globally and what it will take to manage them sustainably. Briefing includes a discussion of a Consensus Statement on Climate Change and Coral Reefs signed by thousands of scientists worldwide and the expected outcomes from ICRS2012.

Lessons from the Great Barrier Reef: The best managed reef in the world has experienced many management successes, but it continues to face as many challenges. That's why the Great Barrier Reef today is a World Heritage Area, but is being considered by UNESCO for a designation as site "in danger." What can the world learn from efforts to protect the Great Barrier Reef?
