NOAA is an agency that enriches life through science. Our reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as we work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them. NOAA’s scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it. The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program brings together expertise from across the agency for a multidisciplinary approach to understanding and conserving coral reef ecosystems for current and future generations.
IYOR Activities Plan

Many offices within NOAA will highlight International Year of the Reef 2018 online and on their social media accounts, including:
