Thanks to the efforts of many people and institutions,muchmore attention is=
being paid to the plight of marine ecosystems and coral reefs together with=
the need to conserve them for future generations.
Beyond greater public awareness and attention, action is required, we must=
reach out to others, to inform them it is no longer enough to talk. A clear=
course of action must be established, to combat today's problems and this=
must be based on a sound diagnosis of causes.

The International Conference has three basic objectives;
1. To share experiences concerning coastal and Marine Resources    =20
management, and ways of long-term financing of coral reef conservation and=
2. Take positive steps to identify, and implement, more effective marine=20
conservation efforts.
3. Develop ecologically marine tourism, and to find a sustainable Finance=
Mechanism for the Conservation of the Coral Reefs.
Knowing how important coastal and marine resources are, we must take action=
to convince many others of the importance of our concerns. We must=20
communicate to all branches of science, governments, institutions and=20
people, specialists and decision makers, the urgency of needed actions.
It is important that others share our concerns.
While those with knowledge are convinced of the problems and aware of the=
dire consequences, there is a tide of complacency and disengagement among=
the global community, unlike anything we have witnessed in past years. This=
must be combated if we are to succeed.
Aims of the Conference are :
Achieving the enrichment of each other by identifying successful experience=
in raising funds and assistance, from resource users, and interested groups=
to support conservation and rehabilitation of
marine ecosystems. Moves generated from individual lessons learned, applied=
to wider applications of these experiences in the field, to support=20
implementation of good ideas that emerge from these deliberations.
