Programs: CORAL helps create coral reef parks and other protected areas where coral reefs can be appreciated in their natural condition.

CORAL provides financial and technical support to conservation programs that reduce the impact of over-fishing, excessive coastal building, the dumping of sewage, chemicals and sediment, and other human activities that kill coral reefs. CORAL has contributed over $200,000 to local organizations in the Caribbean and the Pacific.
Through public education, CORAL helps people:
- appreciate the value of coral reefs
- understand why coral reefs should be protected; and
- learn how they can help protect the reefs.

CORAL has been selected by the International Coral Reef Initiative and the United Nations Environmental Program to head up a four-year global awareness campaign on coral reefs.

Mission:
The Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is a member-
supported, non-profit organization, dedicated to keeping coral reefs alive around the world.
Coral reefs are one of nature's most magnificent creations -- filled with thousands of unique and exotic plants and animals. Over one-quarter of all marine species depend on healthy coral reefs. Humans depend on coral reefs too: coral reefs are the primary source of food and income for millions of people, produce valuable chemical compounds for medicines, and provide a natural wave barrier, protecting beaches and coastlines from storms and floods.
Coral reefs have thrived on earth for over 50 million years, but up to 70% of the world's reefs may be destroyed by human activities in the next few decades if we do not take action now.
protected areas, and provide funding and technical support for coral reef conservation efforts around the world.
CORAL uses direct protection and public education programs to keep coral reefs alive. CORAL works in active partnership with divers, local communities and governments, scientists, and other concerned groups and individuals to find innovative, sustainable solutions to the many threats facing coral reefs around the world.
