You can read and if you support it, sign it, here:

There are over 6000 people who read coral-list, worldwide.  If people pitch
in and sign, we should be able to increase the number of signatures to a
lot more than 2500.  This is a chance to get more international attention
for the threats to coral reefs, and maybe even support some action.  The
statement endorses both local actions and global actions.  Please consider
