Led by a passionate team and guided by a committed board, CORAL partners with local communities to save our planet's coral reefs. Following our well-respected and successful Coral Reef Sustainable Destination (CRSD ) approach to conservation, we engage on the local level to make international impacts.
Coral reefs are located in more than 100 countries around the world and countless communities rely on them for income, food, and coastal protection. This makes the protection of coral reefs an important matter for policy makers and governments, especially ministries of tourism, environment, and fisheries. Our Issue Briefs  provide an overview of each ecological and economic impact, as well as policy options for global, national, and local action to help protect this important resource.
CORAL staff  have extensive knowledge about coral reefs, the factors threatening their health, and all phases of CORAL's work in communities around the world. To talk to one of our experts, please contact Lisa Owens Viani, Communications Manager, by email  or phone at 415-834-0900 (ext. 307).
CORAL builds grassroots partnerships with local communities, government leaders, marine recreation providers, and organizations to protect coral reefs from climate change and other human-induced stresses. We welcome all inquiries from the media about our conservation programs.
