Guam - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has awarded the government of Guam a $556,287 grant. The money is going to the Department of Administration for Guam FY13-14 Coral Reef Conservation Cooperative Agreement.

According a press release from Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo's office the Coral Reef Conservation Cooperative Agreement promotes and encourages coral reef conservation outreach and public education. The funds will also continue supporting Guam's coral reef management activities, watershed management activities, and coral reef research.

"Guam's coral reefs are the foundation of our fisheries and tourism industries," said Congresswoman Bordallo. "This grant helps to protect the many diverse coral reef ecosystems we have around our island from pollution and climate change. I have consistently supported efforts to protect, conserve and restore our coral reef resources on Guam, and I look forward to these funds being used to protect these critical marine habitats for future generations."
