* Addressing sediment and nutrient run-off to coral reefs from development
* Implementing priority actions described in watershed and marine protected area (MPA) management plans in areas containing U.S. coral reef ecosystems

International (Regional focus on Micronesia, Samoa and the Southwest Pacific, the Wider Caribbean, and the Coral Triangle region; however, all international coral reef locations are eligible.)
