    I watched Chasing Coral on Netflix last night and am a much more educated citizen of earth because of it.

    The Immediate Need to Prevent Coral Reefs from Going Extinct

    Jeff Orlowski won the U.S. Documentary Audience Award at Sundance earlier this year for "Chasing Coral,” a stunning documentary about the fight to protect coral reefs from going extinct. The film featuring breathtaking and distressing underwater footage of coral around the globe while educating viewers about the life cycle, recent history, and how endangered coral reefs are.

    Netflix brings the fight to save coral reefs straight to your computer with this award-winning documentary.

    From the website Chasing Coral, Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling ocean adventure to discover why and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world.

    The Campaign

    Since our journey began, we knew that if we could capture visual evidence of coral bleaching, we could reveal the phenomenon in a powerful way. Now it’s time to connect the story to action. Learn more about how you can get involved.

    Chasing Coral was directed by Jeff Orlowski and produced by Larissa Rhodes. 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.


    The Canary in the coal mine is dying and I hope we - humanity - find a global solution very soon or the next specie die off could be us.
