Coral Health and Threats in the Pacific Islands
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.
