    The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is hosting a webinar in partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environmental Programme (SPREP). This webinar will shine a light on the work we have done on coral reefs in the South Pacific and share what we learned on the state of corals and reef fish with people working to protect and preserve these resources in the region.Coral Reefs in the South Pacific: Outlook from the Global Reef Expedition 8/18/22 at 11am in Samoa (8/17/22 at 6pm ET)Between 2012 and 2015 KSLOF's Global Reef Expedition surveyed and mapped reefs in the Pacific Islands Region. Coral reef experts from around the world were joined by researchers from the region to conduct extensive coral, benthic and fish surveys. The results of this work represent a huge contribution to understanding of coral reefs in the region. This Webinar will share the findings of this voyage in the Pacific Region, both wonderful and disturbing. Both SPREP and KSLOF have endorsed Actions under the IOC Decade for Ocean Science. This webinar will provide a platform to explore science needs for the Pacific and to form future collaborations.
