We’re helping the Great Barrier Reef resist, adapt to, and recover from the impacts of climate change as part of an Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) project.
The Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program (RRAP) is a consortium dedicated to helping the Great Barrier Reef resist, adapt to, and recover from the impacts of climate change.
The program aims to provide reef managers and decision-makers with an innovative toolkit of safe, acceptable and cost-effective interventions in conjunction with best-practice reef management and the reduction of carbon emissions.
Researchers within QUT are working on the following RRAP sub-programs:
- Stakeholder and traditional owner engagement
- Cooling and shading
- Moving corals
- Rubble stabilisation
- Integrated logistics and automation
- Coral aquaculture and deployment.
