PROJECT TITLE:            Barbados Marine Trust Project

 

LOCATION: Barbados    

 

PROPOSAL DATE: Spring/summer 2006

         

TIMELINE: 1 week project                

 

PROJECT AIMS:  The Barbados Marine Trust did a Reef Ball demonstration project in 2004 that has reached the required one-year anniversary for it to be evaluated by the government as acceptable technology.  The Reef Balls were quite a success.  Now, the Reef Ball Foundation would like to train the Barbados Marine Trust on how to plant the Reef Balls with propagated corals so they can move the technology demonstration to the next level.

 

BUDGET: $15,000 for coral transplant supplies and two trainers.
