The recent discussion on 82 coral species indicated that more can to be done for the conservation of coral species diversity. What about a Mini-Symposium during the 12th ICRS dedicated to this important interdisciplinary issue? Coral life history, ecology, integrative taxonomy, spacial and temporal evolution, diseases, biogeography, protected areas, international cooperation and education should contribute to the conservation of species diversity. The corals and their problems do not respect the state boundaries. There are international documents as well states lows and regulations, but the specialists should say more. I think this is a next good step for everyone and the moment is appropriate to exchange ideas about such Mini-Symposium.
