Other highlights from the 37th ICRI meeting included an emphasis on the importance of indigenous wisdom in reef conservation, the introduction of the Coral Reef Breakthrough, planning for the next GCRMN Global Report, and an all-female panel discussion on devising response plans. A significant move was the development of a platform for youth perspectives, ensuring their voices are part of future ICRI actions.

CRF™ Director of Restoration Strategy, Jessica Levy presented the Foundation’s membership application to the committee. She says, “Joining ICRI is a milestone for CRF™ – it helps deepen our focus on global collaboration and support, facilitating our engagement with international experts. As we look to the future, we're energized by the prospect of increased collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and united action. Working together is the only way to move the needle for life in our oceans. Coming together is the only way we solve any of the challenges of the post-modern world.”
