The Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN) works hard to improve management and conservation of coral reefs by providing manuals, equipment, databases, training, problem solving, and helps with finding funds for reef monitoring – all coordinated in a global network.
Reef Check is an international non-profit organization devoted to the following goals and objectives:
- Educate the public and governments about the value of coral reefs and rocky reef ecosystems and the crisis facing them
- Create a global network of volunteer teams, trained and led by scientists, that regularly monitor and report on reef health using a standard method
- Facilitate collaborative use of reef health information by community groups, governments, universities and businesses to design and implement ecologically sound and economically sustainable solutions
- Stimulate local action to protect remaining pristine reefs and rehabilitate damaged reefs worldwide especially through the creation of Marine Protected Areas.
