To Coral List:


The Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN) is compiling a report
'Status of Coral Reefs in Tsunami Affected Countries: 2005' to update
the global report released in early December 2004.


We seek your assistance in writing the Chapters on Indonesia, Malaysia,
Thailand and Myanmar.


The chapters are being drafted from published reports and papers, but we
would like more data, information, figures and photographs.


Do you have:


*	Any survey data on the status of the reefs (hopefully including
pre-tsunami data)? 
*	Any eye witness accounts of what happened on the day? 
*	Any accounts of rehabilitation - both good and bad, that
followed the tsunami? 


Your material may be included in the text or as a separate box and all
contributions are acknowledged.


This report will be released in Phuket Thailand in February and is
supported by the Governments of USA, Australia, Japan, and agencies,
UNEP, IUCN, WWF and IOC-UNESCO for free distribution.



Thank you,


Clive Wilkinson, David Souter and Jeremy Goldberg
