The CRCP's mission is to support effective management and sound science to preserve, sustain and restore valuable coral reef ecosystems for future generations. Addressing the root causes of threats to coral ecosystems is best achieved with an engaged public taking part in the solutions. Using and promoting CRCP’s new Facebook page, and other Web 2.0 resources such as RSS and AddThis, our objective is to facilitate conversations on coral conservation by allowing visitors to easily share and access our web content. We seek to expand the shared passion for coral ecosystem resources and grow the community of stakeholders that is willing to be vocal about the importance of coral conservation. To that end, we invite you to check out three new social media tools available from our website.

The CRCP RSS feed features news stories about coral ecosystems from around the globe from the 'Corals in the News' section of our site. Learn more about RSS and how to use RSS readers here.

The CRCP Facebook page features highlights from our site, including 'Featured Stories,' 'Corals in the News,' 'Coral Facts,' new issues of our newsletter, and more. If you are a member of Facebook, please visit our page and 'like' us or write on our Wall.

AddThis is a tool that allows visitors to our website to easily share our web content on social media venues, email, etc. The AddThis button appears in each 'Featured Story,' as well as at the bottom of every page on our site. The most popular social media venues are featured on the button, but if you hover over it, you will have the option to choose one of over 300 ways to share our content.
