PROTECT GUAM'S CORAL REEFS!

TAKE THE
PLEDGE.

And Join the Guam Coral Reef Initiative.

I pledge to protect Guam’s natural environment. I pledge that I will not feed fish or other marine life, harass sea creatures, or litter. I will not touch, break, or stand on corals. I promise to encourage others to respect Guam’s coral reefs. In honor of the CHamoru people, I pledge to care for this island and its coral reefs for future generations.

Guam Year of the Reef newsletter - June 2018

Did you know that Guam has lost 80% of the coral on its seaward slopes since 1960? Due to climate change and local stressors such as pollution, our coral reefs continue to decline. Between 2013-2015, Guam lost half of its branching staghorn corals. Guam’s natural resource managers and local researchers are now investigating innovative ways to actively restore our island’s coral reef habitats. Guam’s ocean- based coral nursery, located within the Piti Bomb Holes Marine Preserve, has hosted over 1,000 fragments of five species of branching staghorn corals.
