draft Goals and Objectives. The CRCP Threat-Based and International 
Draft Goals and Objectives are available for public comment, March 27 – 
April 24, 2009.

Your comments are important to us and will help inform the Final Goals

appropriate working group (Fishing Impacts, Land-Based Sources of 
Pollution, Climate Change, and International) for consideration and 
incorporation into the final document as appropriate.

When providing comment, we are particularly interested in the following:
• Are the Goals and Objectives at the appropriate scale (20-year Goals 
and 5-year Objectives)?
• Are there significant gaps?
• Are the Goals and Objectives sufficiently focused to achieve 
measurable improvement in coral reef ecosystem condition?
• Identify which objectives you feel should be the top priority for the
