Coral reefs are the 'rain forests' of the ocean, containing the highest
diversity of marine organisms and facing the greatest threats from humans.
As shallow-water coastal habitats, they are readily accessible for a wide
range of economically and culturally important activities, ranging from
fishing to tourism. Indeed, they often provide a very large proportion of
the food and income available to coastal communities who have few
alternatives. Their accessibility makes reefs vulnerable to threats that
include over-fishing, pollution and physical damage. Reefs also face
problems from more distant sources, such as global warming which may be
responsible for recent widespread coral mortality and increased frequency of
This two-day meeting will bring together people with a diverse set of
interests in coral reef conservation, ranging from ecologists concerned with
extinction of coral reef species to economists concerned with the well-being
of people who depend on reefs.
