NOAA will provide new information every week on a wide variety of issues related to coral reefs, and direct access to experts in many fields. Each of the 52 weekly coral reef stories will be a package of ideas, experts to consult, and a wide-range of issues affecting the reefs. Some of these include: dynamite fishing in tropical waters, protected area management, and reef restoration projects.
Although NOAA is the coordinating entity for this effort, the list of story ideas and experts includes individuals from a variety of universities, agencies and organizations such as the American Zoo and Aquarium Association and the IUCN (World Conservation Union).
If you need help with any of these stories, contact Matt Stout at NOAA Public Affairs in Washington,
D.C., at (202) 482-6090.
