Welcome to the Caribbean Coral Reef Institute
The Caribbean Coral Reef Institute (CCRI) is a cooperative program between the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez (UPRM) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Institute sponsor's scientific research and monitoring programs that address short and long-term management-driven priorities for the understanding and managing of the coral reef ecosystem of the US Caribbean. These activities address the major threats to coral reefs within an ecosystem context, including human socio-economic dimensions, and enhance our understanding of the biological and physical processes that structure coral reefs and impact the health of the ecosystem. Through its sponsored programs and partnerships, CCRI aims to build research and management capacity in order to fully utilize the scientific expertise of the region in promoting both sustainable ecosystems and the services they provide.
