Mapping and monitoring coral reefs in the Commonwealth

Coral reefs provide a home to about 25 per cent of all marine species and millions of people depend on that biodiversity for their livelihoods and food security.

Coral reefs are also one of the most sensitive ecosystems in the world, acting as a barometer for global warming. For example, just a small rise in the temperature of the oceans will cause coral reefs to bleach and potentially die if the higher temperature is sustained.

Urgent action is needed to protect these vibrant underwater habitats from the effects of climate change, pollution and overfishing, which is why Coral Reef Protection and Restoration is one of the Commonwealth Blue Charter Action Groups.

Mapping and monitoring provided by our partners at the Allen Coral Atlas, converts data on coral reefs to generate maps, monitoring, images and notifications to support the implementation of coral reef and other ecosystem planning, as well as governance, evaluation and management in Commonwealth countries.
