This book is a study on coral reef conservation goals and strategies. Healthy coral reefs are among the most biologically diverse and economically valuable ecosystems on earth, providing hundreds of billions of dollars in food, jobs, recreational opportunities, coastal protection and other important services. Yet, they are threatened by an increasing array of impacts, primarily from global climate change, unsustainable fishing and pollution. The decline and loss of coral reef ecosystems have significant social, cultural, economic, and ecological impacts on people and communities in the United States and around the world. However, with effective leadership and management, healthy, resilient reef ecosystems can continue to provide these valuable services to current and future generations. (Imprint: Nova)
