Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.

  • George RR Martin wrote this story that is about the sea sponges that have sentience and the people start eating them and they're unaware that the sea sponges have sentience and they start getting attacked by these strange creatures that come out of the sea and it's raining their villages and they can't figure out what it is until a telepath realizes that the sea sponges are sentient and they are the ones creating the monsters out of the sea and that they have been on the planet for a super long time. A great short story that actually encapsulates why you shouldn't eat shrimp or mess with coral LOL

  • Just a thought i know it can't possibly be this simple as these animals are so complex, but couldn't we establish new reefs in the warming areas of ocean that due to climate change now have the temperature range to be suitable for corals? If anyone knows how viable this is i would love to know, i hate it seeming so hopeless for the biodiversity of our planet.

It's sad that people care about saving the pandas or saving the turtles but they don't care about the most Important thing for our planet. We wouldn't have to save animals or ecosystems if us humans stop doing all of our trash behaviors we wouldn't have to worry about saving everything from ourselves

  • The thing about features like this is that they don't give suggestions or solutions, they say to contact their website. I will give a few of my own. Learn. Go research. Go find the things that nature is telling you to listen to to heal and help. The answers are already out there, its just that main stream media, corporations, governments and school institutes don't want you to know about them because then they will lose money. Including Netflix. They are happy to show you the problems, and contradict that and be hypocrites by making the solutions "illegal" or out of your price range or so many brick wall barriers to get through that you loose your stamina and will power. Now, more than ever you need to truly understand what anarchist means. The ways I learned many of these things was listening to the grassroots groups, like permaculture, biodynamics, regenerative agriculture, holistic designers to only name a few. It is time to unlearn. Relearn appropriately as prescribed by nature, She speaks to you very gently, listen carefully. Go watch a sunrise, a sunset, the tides rise and fall, the rain, a seedling grow, a flower bloom, springtime, a bee fly, the river, the clouds, it is all so very special, poetic and romantic. All those things work together to allow us the right and privilege to live on this planet and you need to give just as much back to make sure it can continue as it wants to. The saying in skiing is, listen to the mountain and don't fight her, if she doesn't want you there she will let you know. It is usually how people get hurt. The same saying is for all of nature and the planet. She speaks softly, but when she is done with the parenting, she will let you know, like any mother would. Pay attention. Change and adapt your habits so that your changes do good to help nature be the beautiful life giving force that it is. Give care and the abundance will be given to you. First research what those changes to do good is, like turning off the water when brushing your teeth, take shorter showers every other day, be picky about the products you buy and how they are packaged. Let nature live and nature will let you live.

  • I read somewhere that coral will die if you touch it. This guy with corals in his house wasnt wearing gloves. So, i googled it and have no shame that I copy pasted it. Coral Etiquette Simply touching corals to see what they feel like can cause the death of an entire colony. Oils from your skin can disturb the delicate mucous membranes which protect the animals from disease. If feeding coral is startled, it retracts for protection and in doing so is unable to feed.
