The Coral Reef Conservation Program is a partnership between the NOAA Line Offices that work on coral reef issues. We bring together expertise from across NOAA for a multidisciplinary approach to understanding and conserving coral reef ecosystems.
The Coral Reef Conservation Program is responding to public comments on its draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for conservation and restoration activities conducted by the program. The draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement assesses the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts of the program's work.
The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program was established in 2000 by the Coral Reef Conservation Act. Headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, the program is part of NOAA's Office for Coastal Management.
