Welcome to the
National Environmental Science Program's
Tropical Water Quality Hub
Providing innovative research for practical solutions to maintain
and improve tropical water quality from catchment to coast
Great Barrier Reef
16th-19th July 2018
Pullman Reef Hotel Casino
Like many reefs around the world, the Great Barrier Reef is suffering from the combined effects of many threats and disturbances, including mass coral bleaching, pollution, storm damage, and outbreaks of pests like Crown-of-Thorns starfish, among others.
While some of these threats are caused or exacerbated by global issues such as climate change, others may be amenable to local- or regional-scale intervention, restoration and management. Unfortunately, we currently have limited knowledge about these options and how they might be effective on the Great Barrier Reef.
There will be three days of presentations (16th-18th July) at our conference venue, the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino, followed by optional field trips on the 19th July.
