Working to preserve and protect coral reef ecosystems

The United States Coral Reef Task Force (USCRTF) was established in 1998 by Presidential Executive Order to lead U.S. efforts to preserve and protect coral reef ecosystems. The USCRTF includes leaders of Federal agencies, U.S. States, territories, commonwealths, and Freely Associated States. The USCRTF helps build partnerships, strategies, and support for on-the-ground action to conserve coral reefs.

June 2022 Update:

The Task Force has been meeting virtually since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. We will continue to hold biannual meetings. We hope to see many of you at future in-person meetings. The next Business Meeting will be Thursday, September 1, 2022, in Kona, Hawai'i, COVID-dependent. For more information, visit the conference website.
