Coast to Coral: Crown of Thorns Management
Join Reef Check Australia and friends on the first Tuesday night of each month in your lounge room/office/comfy chair, for an evening of discovery, inspiration and appreciation of our local marine, coastal and catchment environments.
Tina will talk about her current research which involves using ecosystem models to simulate the benefits of different control intervention strategies on Crown of Thorns Starfish (COTS) outbreaks on the Great Barrier Reef. This project is part of the wider COTS Control Innovation Program, a collaborative research partnership between the Great Barrier Reef Foundation and leading institutions with COTS expertise (UQ, AIMS, CSIRO, JCU). The outputs from this project will directly contribute to improved management of these outbreaks on the GBR.
Virtual doors (zoom) opens at 6.25pm for a 6:30 pm start.
Bring a mate and share in the discovery!
At Reef Check Australia we’re all about inspiring our mates and we love to read your thoughts! So, share your favourite parts about the night and tag us! Reef Check Australia #coasttocoral
