The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has some exciting news for you! 2018 has been declared the International Year of the Reef (IYOR). IYOR is a global effort to increase awareness and understanding on the values and threats to coral reefs and to support related conservation, research, and management efforts. All around the world, nations, organizations, schools, and individuals will celebrate the IYOR 2018 in a variety of ways.
