The Planetary Coral Reef Foundation (PCRF) was founded in 1991 to address the coral reef crisis. Since its inception, PCRF has pursued an unprecedented global mission to preserve coral reefs through innovative programs in science, technology and education.
PCRF’s research vessel, the RV Heraclitus, is now completing year twelve of an ongoing expedition to map and monitor the worldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s coral reefs. To date, the RV Heraclitus is the only ship continually at sea studying coral reefs on a planetary basis.
To create the first-ever comprehensive baseline map of living coral reefs, PCRF is pioneering a Coral Reef Satellite Mission in cooperation with scientists at College of Charleston, MIT, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, SeaSpace, Stevens Institute of Technology and USC.
