More Information:

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 Indo
Pacific 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 Indo Pacific Coral Finder
2021 to identify Indo Pacific 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.

What is MASNA?
