FWC Sentinel Site Project

The original objectives of this project were:
i) Conduct active intervention trials to treat diseased coral colonies to reduce the rate of SCTLD progression at localized sites;
ii) Continue collecting small-scale epidemiology information from the existing FWCsentinel sites and develop a model that examines the small-scale spatio-temporaldynamics of SCTLD progression to identify when these sites have entered the ‘endemic‘stage’. Once that is determined;
iii) Outplant coral colonies onto previously established FWC’s sentinel sites.
