Abstract

Global change is causing a widespread decline in coral reefs. This Community Page article proposes to build the World Coral Conservatory, a “Noah's Ark” biological repository that taps into the network of the world’s public aquaria and coral reef scientists, in order to preserve the fast-disappearing biodiversity of coral reefs.
