Similar to coral reefs around the world, corals in the Pacific Islands are especially vulnerable to changing climate, diseases, and human impacts.
Staghorn coral is one of the most important corals in the Caribbean. It, along with elkhorn coral and star corals (boulder, lobed, and mountainous) built Caribbean coral reefs over the last 5,000 years. Learn more about staghorn coral.

Coral reefs provide coastal protection for communities, habitat for fish, and millions of dollars in recreation and tourism, among other benefits. But corals are also severely threatened by rapidly worsening environmental conditions. Learn how NOAA works
Funding to enhance coral resilience and improve the long-term success and efficiency of shallow-water coral reef restoration in a changing climate.
Coral reefs are underwater structures built by tiny sea animals. Their beautiful shapes and colors are a magnet for divers. They also provide an excellent home for thousands of marine creatures, including fish we love to eat.
The NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office’s Coral Species Identification Training Program offers free training and resources on how to identify Info-Pacific reef-building coral species.
Corals Week is December 4–8, 2023! Join us in celebrating this diverse group of invertebrate animals and the reef habitats they create.

Juvenile Coral Abundance Across the U.S. Pacific Influenced by Depth, Heat Stress, Coral Cover, Suitable Substrate, and Human Density
Our results also suggest coral density is dependent on several factors, including and the number of humans in the system.
