Where We Work

US Domestic

Domestically, the Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) funds and equips reef conservation activities by NOAA and its partners in the seven US states and jurisdictions containing coral reefs (American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Florida, Guam, Hawai`i, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands), uninhabited islands including the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Remote Island Areas, as shown on the map.

The CRCP also conducts international coral reef conservation work, including efforts in the Pacific Freely Associated States. Future international efforts will primarily focus on the regions of the Caribbean, Micronesia, Samoa and the Southwest Pacific, and the Coral Triangle. This focus will utilize the majority of the available CRCP funding and other assistance for international conservation work. However, the CRCP will continue to support successful partnerships in other geographical areas.
