We will be diving again with our partner, Dr. Thomas Goreau, to harvest and transplant corals to the Biorock reef site in LBTS as well as evaluate the progress of the project. Dr. Goreau is the President of the Global Coral Reef Alliance, a non-profit organization for coral reef protection located in Cambridge, Mass. He is a biogeochemist and marine biologist and conducts research on coral reef and fisheries restoration, mariculture, shoreline protection and community based coral reef management. Dr Goreau has successfully developed over 300 Biorock projects that are up and running around the world including in Indonesia, Maldives, Seychelles, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Panama, and one of the most remote and unexplored reefs in the world, the Saya de Malha Banks in the Indian Ocean. He is also Coordinator of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development Partnership in New Technologies for Small Island Developing States. He was formerly Senior Scientific Affairs Officer at the United Nations Centre for Science and Technology for Development.
