An Adaptive Reefscape describes a network of healthy reefs that are interconnected through the movement of baby corals. For these reefs to reach a ‘healthy’ status, local threats such as overfishing, habitat destruction and poor water quality must be mitigated. To achieve this, a collaboration with the local people who rely on and interact with reefs is essential. Thus, CORAL has evolved into ‘uniter,’ an organisation bringing community members together to protect coral reefs around the world. The gathering of teams of local experts is especially effective through supporting interventions which align the respective community’s social, cultural and economic needs.
