The International Society for Reef Studies (ISRS) was established in 1980 and is the central educated society to which reef researchers and chiefs from over the world have a place. The essential goal of the Society is to advance the creation and spread of investigative information and comprehension of coral reefs. Presently these reefs are under risk all around as at no other time, as an aftereffect of both environmental change and nearby effects. The mission of ISRS is to advance the generation and scattering of exploratory learning and comprehension of coral reefs. Ruth D. Gates is the current president for this society.
This society is purely dedicated for conservation of coral reefs. To accomplish its goals the ISRS prints and disseminates the diary Coral Reefs and a Society pamphlet, Reef newsletters. The ISRS likewise holds yearly gatherings and co-supports different get-togethers, symposia and meetings identifying with coral reefs. The Darwin Medal, the most prestigious medal given by the International Society for Reef Studies, is introduced like clockwork at the International Coral Reef Symposium. It is recompensed to a senior ISRS part who is perceived worldwide for significant commitments all through her or his profession. The decoration has been recompensed seven times. ISRS conducts the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS), which will be held quadrennially. The last symposium was the Honolulu, Hawaii, in 2016.Read More»
