Florida Reef Resilience Program
The Florida Reef Resilience Program is a public and private partnership which brings scientists, reef managers and the people whose livelihoods and recreational pursuits depend upon healthy coral reefs together to achieve a common goal. The program is designed to improve the collective understanding of coral reef resilience by exploring the biological and environmental aspects of reef health, developing strategies to improve the health of Florida's reefs, and enhancing the sustainability of reef-dependent commercial enterprises and recreational activities.
The Florida Reef Resilience Program is the product of discussions between the state
of Florida, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, The Nature
Conservancy and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. The Program area encompasses the scattered chain of individual reefs stretching from the remote Dry Tortugas west of Key West offshore from Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties to its northern terminus in Martin County, Florida.
