Film: Chasing Coral

Gather with community members to learn from experts not only why the climate is in crisis, but different ways we can mobilize to reduce greenhouse emissions and sequester carbon. 

This month we will be watching an Emmy-winning film which has helped tens of millions of viewers understand the coral reef crisis. For three years, Emmy-winning filmmaker Jeff Orlowski and his team followed the work of The Ocean Agency in recording and revealing a global coral bleaching event and the impacts of climate change on the world's reefs, resulting in the Netflix Original Documentary Chasing Coral.
