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.

Green Initiatives 99th film screening, in support of the World Water Day 2019, CHASING CORAL, was filmed over three years, with 500+ hours underwater, includes footage from over 30 countries, and was made with the support of over 500 people around the world.

“It’s not too late for coral reefs…  indeed, for many other ecosystems that are facing challenges from climate change. It’s still possible to reduce the rate at which the climate is changing, and that’s within our power today.”

– Dr. Ove Hoegh-Guldberg

Winner of 7 awards and 17 nominations. Including Best Feature Documentary and Call to Action Award by Boulder International Film Festival.

'Chasing Coral' is a fascinating documentary from the same director, of 'Chasing Ice' (2012), Jeff Orlowski. The film tells the story of climate change by showing some of its unambiguous effects.
