The World Resources Institute (WRI) has spearheaded a broad collaboration of leading conservation organizations and research institutions to conduct a global, map-based analysis of threats to the world’s coral reefs called Reefs at Risk Revisited. This update of our influential 1998 analysis, Reefs at Risk – a Map-Based Indicator of Threats to the World’s Coral Reefs, provides detailed examination of human pressures on coral reefs, implications for reef condition, and projections of associated socioeconomic impacts in coastal communities. For the first time, the analysis explicitly includes the effects of global warming and ocean acidification. The report will be launched simultaneously in Washington, DC and London on February 23rd.


On March 2nd, lead authors Lauretta Burke and Katie Reytar will present the top findings of the analysis and will provide a tour of online mapping, data and resources.  The presentation will also include a screening of a short (3.5 min) video on project results.  In addition, Elizabeth Selig from Conservation International and Helen Fox from World Wildlife Fund will discuss their work on coral reefs and the potential applications of Reefs at Risk results.


Copies of the report and treats will be available.


Please RSVP to Benjamin Kushner (


We look forward to seeing you,

The Reefs at Risk Team
