Coral reef condition: A status report for the Hawaiian Archipelago
Effective coral reef conservation cannot be accomplished without an informed and engaged public. The Hawaiian Islands coral status report is part of a larger effort to provide communities and decision-makers with information about managing and conserving coral reef ecosystems. This status report provides a geographically specific assessment of Hawaiian coral reef condition for the period 2012–2016. The Hawaiian Archipelago was divided into five sub-regions based on data resolution, geographical features, and impacts to the ecosystem. Coral reefs in Hawai'i are in fair condition.
