What's Holding Up Coral Recovery?

Action: Save Our Oceans

June 22, 2013   Action Alert ID# 103

 

An important pair of corals urgently needs your help. Elkhorn and staghorn corals are being deprived of a recovery plan that would help guide management necessary for their conservation.

The feds convened the recovery team shortly after these imperiled corals were listed under the Endangered Species Act in 2006, and the team completed its work on the plan not long after. But the recovery plan still hasn't been released because it's awaiting internal review. The delay in issuing the recovery plan is blocking important conservation actions as well as funding for elkhorn and staghorn corals.

Frustratingly, it's tremendously difficult to get the feds to reveal any details about the waylaid plan. What we do know is that coral recovery has been put on a back burner, and we suspect it's because the plan recommends that we take action to curb global warming.

Corals are continuing to suffer in the meantime -- there has even been a proposal to reclassify them from "threatened" to "endangered" status.

The release of the coral recovery plan will not only help struggling elkhorn and staghorn corals, but also the coral reef ecosystems they inhabit.

Please take action now: Sign the petition and ask the government to publish the coral recovery plan and put it to work.
