Project Summary:
Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease is spreading rapidly across reefs in Caribbean UK Overseas Territories (OTs), threatening biodiversity, tourism, food security, livelihoods and disaster resilience. An urgent priority, this project will develop a strong collaborative approach to managing the disease in the Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands, and British Virgin Islands and consider modelling approaches to inform adaptive management options. Knowledge exchange will be extended to all Caribbean OTs and a longer-term partnership to support coral reef resilience fostered.
