Dear listers

Please consider signing the consensus statement described below


We invite you to join hundreds of scientists from around the world in endorsing a Consensus Statement urging governments to take action for the preservation of coral reefs for the benefit of present and future generations. Please feel free to distribute this email amongst your colleagues.

The Consensus Statement was drafted by a working group of eminent scientists, brought together under the auspices of The Center for Ocean Solutions, to address the topic of climate change impacts on coral reefs.

To build a large base of support in preparation for the public launch of the statement (during the opening ceremony of the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium, on July 9th, in Cairns, Australia), please go to https://secure.jcu.edu.au/app/form/coralcoe/registration.cfm to join other scientists from around the world by adding your name to the list of endorsees.
