Abstract CoralWatch, launched in 2002, is a citizen-science program that seeks to integrate education and global reef monitoring by examining coral bleaching and uses a monitoring network to educate the public about reef biology, climate change, and environmental stewardship. The organization's development from research and monitoring to education and ecotourism has presented a number of challenges.
