Field trip bookings are now closed
The tradition of the International Coral Reef Symposium is to offer Scientific Field Trips as they
provide participants with a better understanding of the biology and geology of coral reefs in the
region where the Symposium is being hosted.
In 2012, ICRS delegates and their accompanying partners will be spoilt for choice with multiple trip
offerings both before and after the
Symposium that are centred on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef.
Each trip will offer a different experience but all will provide insights into management, marine
protected areas, the effect of recent cyclones, or techniques to restore coral reef habitats.
For those who are not scuba divers or snorkelers, there is a land-based tour to Townsville to visit the
Museum of Tropical Queensland, Reef HQ Aquarium, the Australian Institute of Marine Science and
the World Heritage Listed Magnetic Island.
