Sable project

In future, conservation efforts to preserve coral reefs will increasingly depend on the adaptation capabilities of corals, an aspect rarely addressed in the past. This project aims at promoting a conservation strategy that accounts for the adaptive potential of corals against bleaching. To do so, we elaborate a Seascape Genomics methodology to assess conservation priorities and apply it to the UNESCO world heritage reef system of New Caledonia. This genomics-based tool will be used to inform local authorities on conservation priorities and the methodology transferred to any reef system around the world.

SABLE project is a joint project between ENTROPIE lab (at the Institute of Research for Development, New Caledonia), and the LASIG lab (at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale (Lausanne, Switzerland).

Sable project is funded by the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP)
