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’s new Strategic Plan is now available. The Strategic Plan will guide the program’s future coral research, conservation, and restoration efforts from 2018 to 2040.
NOAA's Office for Coastal Management announces its intention to prepare a programmatic environmental impact statement (PEIS) for its Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP). Publication of the Federal Register Notice begins the official scoping period that will help identify issues and alternatives to be considered in the PEIS. Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement Scoping comments are now being accepted and information on how to submit comments can be found here: https://coast.noaa.gov/czm/compliance/
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.
