In 2015, the Maui Coral Reef Recovery Team (MCRT) authored the comprehensive report Maui’s Coral Reefs: Declining Trends 1993-2015. The Report combines a number of existing, diverse data sets into one, simple format. The Report references current scientific data from multiple agencies, and offers solutions to reverse coral declines in Maui County.
MNMRC utilizes the Report as an important outreach tool, and has widely distributed it to community members, Maui County Council Members, state and federal agency personnel, and policy makers.
The Report is also the basis for MNMRC’s Reverse the Decline public outreach campaign and Maui’s Reef Report Card.
