Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator, NOAA, and leading experts discuss “Reefs at Risk Revisited” report findings and solutions.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A new comprehensive analysis of the threats to coral reefs will be launched globally on Wednesday, February 23, 2011. More than 25 partners contributed to the report, and events will take place in Washington, D.C.; London, England; Malaysia; Australia; and other locations.

The D.C. event at the National Press Club will feature Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator, NOAA; Jonathan Lash, President, WRI; Lauretta Burke, lead author, WRI; and Dr. Nancy Knowlton, Chair of Marine Science, Smithsonian Institution.

The groundbreaking report, “Reefs at Risk Revisited,” is the most detailed assessment of threats to coral reefs ever undertaken. Led by the World Resources Institute, along with the Nature Conservancy, the WorldFish Center, ICRAN, UNEP-WCMC, and GCRMN, it maps out local and global pressures on reefs; assesses the vulnerability of people in reef-dependent countries; and provides recommendations to safeguard reefs in the future.



Light breakfast and coffee will be served.
