ACKNOWLEDGMENTS – the Coral Finder could not have happened without the support of Charlie Veron and Mary Stafford-Smith who made available images for the first edition. Charlie is a true visionary and the Coral Finder is dedicated to extending his life’s work and passionate advocacy for coral reefs. The Australian Coral Reef Society (ACRS) supported the early development of the Coral Finder when no-one else would. To Charlie, Mary and the ACRS – thank you.
