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 12 Federal agencies, seven U.S. States, Territories, Commonwealths, and three Freely Associated States. The USCRTF helps build partnerships, strategies, and support for on-the-ground action to conserve coral reefs.

The 40th U.S. Coral Reef Task Force Meeting will be held in Pago Pago, American Samoa from August 13th to the 16th. More information can be found on the 40th U.S. Coral Reef Task Force Meeting website, hosted by the local planning committee.
