 A friendly reminder that the nomination period for the Coral Reef Alliance
(CORAL) Prize closes on Friday, May 4! More information on the award is
below and the application can be found here: http://coral.org/prize/

CORAL supporters and marine conservation advocates are invited to nominate
an individual(s) (not themselves) within the coral reef conservation
community for the 2018 CORAL Conservation Prize. This special award
provides a unique opportunity to recognize coral reef conservation leaders
from around the world, support outstanding local coral reef conservation
efforts, provide a platform to highlight coral reefs within local,
national, and international media and provide an incentive for continued
work in all coral regions of the world.

The CORAL Conservation Prize committee will award one conservation leader
from the submitted nominations a cash prize of $20,000, apportioned between
the winner and the group that he or she represents if any. This individual
will be CORAL’s guest of honor a celebratory ceremony on September 21, 2018
in San Francisco, California where they can share stories and key learnings
about their successful work to save coral reefs.

Nomination Criteria:

   - Must be an individual (or a leader in a local group) who is
   successfully working to advance coral reef conservation at a local or
   regional scale with specific milestones and successes
   - Display leadership that has resulted in significant positive
   environmental change, either through a recent achievement or a long career,
   that can be articulated by the nominator
   - Able to travel to the U.S. and to communicate his or her coral
   conservation work to a diverse audience
   - Effectively communicate how award funds will be spent
