Added to this the threat of mass coral bleaching has recently emerged. It is estimated to have caused over 90 per cent coral mortality to 16 per cent of the world’s coral reefs. Efforts have now begun to improve the prospects of coral reefs by identifying resilient areas, enhancing their protection, and implementing strategies to support ecosystem resilience. Initiatives to build these principles into practical management of coral reefs and other marine ecosystems are under way in several areas around the globe. This guide builds on these initiatives by bringing together the latest scientific knowledge and management experience to assist managers in responding effectively to mass coral bleaching. It is designed to provide pragmatic, science-based suggestions for adaptive management in this time of change. We commend it to reef managers worldwide, and hope that the experience of implementing the ideas within will further advance scientific knowledge and the practice of coral reef management.
