  • Description:
    The United States Coral Reef Task Force (USCRTF) was established in 1998 by Presidential Executive Order 13089 to lead U.S. efforts to preserve and protect coral reef ecosystems. Current, accurate, and consistent maps greatly enhance efforts to preserve and manage coral reef ecosystems. With comprehensive maps and habitat assessments, coral reef managers can be more effective in designing and implementing a variety of conservation measures, including: Long-term monitoring programs with accurate baselines from which to track changes; Place-based conservation measures such as marine protected areas (MPAs); and targeted research to better understand the oceanographic and ecological processes affecting coral reef ecosystem health.
