Media Coverage July 2008 - August 2008 11th International Coral Reef Symposium Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA July 7-11, 2008
The 11th International Coral Reef Symposium was covered by the Associated Press, Reuters, Bloomberg, Agence France-Presse, United Press International, Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, The Washington Post, USA Today, The Independent, Nature, Science, New Scientist, Time, National Public Radio, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and NBC Nightly News, among many others. SeaWeb assisted in generating more than 500 print, broadcast, radio, television, and Internet-based stories, including some generated by wire services and widely distributed by these powerful "message multipliers." For example, Inter Press Service alone has a potential pick-up in more than 500 newspapers and magazines around the world with approximately 200 million readers. After an exhaustive search, we have counted stories that appeared on more than 107 television programs, 35 radio stations and in more than 380 print and online media outlets. Overall, we estimate that the potential news reach for the 11th ICRS will have totaled more than 800 million people.
