The Marine Diaries is very proud to present the first of 9 short films as part of our project: #MarineEcosystemDiaries​.

This film is all about: CORAL REEFS πŸ¦‘ 🐑 🦈🐠 πŸŸπŸ™

🌏 What are coral reefs?
🌏 What threats are do they face?
🌏 What’s being done to conserve them?

This beautifully shot film captures the colourful chaos of the coral reef ecosystem, explores the heart-breaking reality of coral bleaching as corals surrender to the relentless impacts of climate change, and importantly, delves into the novel science that’s giving the future of coral reefs some hope. The buzz of life and vibrant charm of coral reefs have captivated humans for many years. We must help bring them back from the brink.
