MASNA Coral ID Workshop
November 5-7, 6:30-10:30 pm Eastern
Online, Interactive over Zoom

In line with MASNA’s Goals and Charter, MASNA presents the MASNA Coral ID

The workshop will be based around the new 2021 Coral Finder Toolkit, a
suite of proven, practical resources for coral identification. The Coral
Finder uses a visual approach that makes it possible for beginners to
advance rapidly with little prior knowledge.

Led by Russell Kelley – author of the Indo Pacific Coral Finder & the Reef
Finder – the workshop uses audio-visual and hands-on training, tutorials
and instruction and includes a take home Coral Finder Toolkit: Coral Finder
2021, a comprehensive workshop manual and audiovisual training.

Participants learn how to use the newly updated Coral Finder 2021 to
identify corals to genus regardless of growth form. Special emphasis is
placed on techniques for field identification, self directed learning and
problem solving. For non-coral specialists, the workshop rapidly develops
basic coral identification skills.

For current or future coral specialists will upgrade their ID skills to the
current state of molecular taxonomy. The workshop provides an introduction
to species identification and how to approach it maturely. The training
applies equally topside or underwater. Even people with extensive prior
knowledge of corals benefit significantly from the problem solving training
built into the Coral Finder workshop.

The workshop also summarizes the changes and implications of new molecular
taxonomy findings while providing an easy- to-grasp, practical, field
focussed approach to coral identification.
