The collaboration of the Fundación Biodiversidad in ShelfReCover will allow to organize a workshop (21-23 November 2016) where leading researchers and managers who are currently undergoing similar experiences of ecological restoration of corals and gorgonians will be invited. From the discussion of the experiences and results, a technical document containing technical guidelines will be prepared for staff of public administrations and natural parks and marine protected areas to allow to conduct successful restorations of deep benthos in other protected areas. This part of the project is essential to cover the lack of transfer between the results of scientific research and its application by state and local governments.
