The UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre has just completed the first ever "World Atlas of Coral Reefs". Details about the book can be found on our web-site on

Official launch on 11 Sept, but you can already order the book from the University of California Press (and Amazon etc).

There will not be a full electronic version of the Atlas, however we are hopeful that much of the underlying map and statistical data from the Atlas will be available on the ReefBase web-site by the end of the year. 

We still have a small number of copies which are being sent, free-of-charge, to active conservation programmes and libraries in developing countries. Send a short description describing the work of the organisation, its need for the book, and financial constraints.
