The prospectus aims to provide basic information on stony coral tissue loss disease and the impact it is having on coral reef ecosystems while sharing the path forward through response, research, restoration, and conservation. The prospectus was created through affiliations with NOAA’s Coral Reef Conservation Program, Florida Sea Grant, and funded by NOAA’s Regional Collaboration Network, Southeast and Caribbean Region Team (SECART). It serves as a useful resource when communicating about this new threat to coral reefs.
