Global SocMon Partners have been busy conducting training and assessments as part of the NOAA/NFWF grant. Some assessments have been completed and we expect to get some useful information that we can share.
SocMon and SEM Pasifika research was shared at the 13th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS), Honolulu Hawaii (June 19-24,2016). A few SocMon regional coordinators presented on their work and shared findings with hundreds of coral reef scientists and managers from around the world. SocMon is being incorporated as part of the rejuvenation of the Caribbean Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network. Potential new partnerships and trainings in Cuba, French and Dutch Antilles are being formed.
