This Web site describes the International Program Office, which coordinates the international activities of NOS.
This Web site is intended to help coral reef and marine protected area managers develop, draft and submit proposals to the U.N. International Maritime Organization (IMO) to establish no anchoring areas. No anchoring areas are specially designated by the IMO to protect coral reefs from harm related to international shipping.
This Web site provides information on the social, cultural and economic foundation of communities that rely on coastal resources. It is a cooperative project between the World Commission on Protected Areas, the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network, and NOAA.
This Web site provides information about the initiative, offers tools to marine protected area (MPA) practitioners, and facilitates a learning network among MPAs to improve management effectiveness.
