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 has published its final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for conservation and restoration
activities conducted by the program. The final 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.
