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.

November 2022 Update:

The Task Force met in-person in Kona, Hawai'i in August/September 2022. We will continue to hold biannual meetings; the next meeting will be in Washington, D.C. in late April 2023. We hope to see many of you at the Business Meeting, which will occur during the full meeting in April. Check back here for updates in early 2023.
