For those who have not seen it yet, the Spring issue of Alert Diver, the magazine of the Divers Alert Network, includes an article entitled "Greater Protection for Reef Corals" by C. Mark Eakin, Ph.D., and Chelsey N. Young. Alert Diver invited NOAA to contribute this article as part of their "Water Planet" column. The article focuses on major threats to coral species and NOAA's proposed listing of 66 species of corals under the Endangered Species Act. You can read it online at http://www.alertdiver.com/Protection or on page 106 of the print edition.
