Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate.


Director: Jeff Orlowski

Writer: Jeff Orlowski , Davis Coombe , Vickie Curtis

Starring: Andrew Ackerman, Pim Bongaerts, Neal Cantin

Focus: A look at the effect of climate change on the world’s coral reef ecosystems.

Synopsis: Divers, scientists and photographers around the world mount an epic underwater campaign to document the disappearance of coral reefs around the world that are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. Coral reefs are the nursery for all life in the oceans, an amazing ecosystem that sustains us. Yet with carbon emissions warming the seas, a phenomenon called ‘coral bleaching’, a sign of mass coral death, has been accelerating around the world. The public has no idea of the scale or implication of the catastrophe silently raging underwater.

The film took more than three years to shoot, and is the result of 500+ hours underwater, submissions of footage from volunteers from 30 countries, as well as support from more than 500 people from various locations around the world.
