The Prince of Wales hosts a meeting on coral reef health

Today The Prince of Wales hosted a meeting in London to discuss how organisations can work together to improve coral reef health.

The meeting, which was organised by The Prince’s International Sustainability Unit, brought together marine experts and global organisations to explore how different sectors can work towards helping coral reefs recover from threats such as pollution and climate change.

Prince Harry was also in attendance to hear his father's speech and learn more about the work being done to protect coral reefs. 

The International Year of the Reef (IYOR) 2018 is a year-long campaign of events and initiatives to promote coral reef conservation.

At the Our Ocean summit last October, The Prince of Wales, with Prince Albert of Monaco and Jordan's Queen Noor, launched the Coral Reef Life Declaration, which seeks commitments from coral reef countries to protect them.
