Coral Bleaching in the Great Barrier Reef with screening of ‘Chasing Corals’

In the last 30 years, we have lost 50% of the world's corals, and coral bleaching events are likely to become even more frequent and severe due to climate change. The documentary Chasing Corals highlights a dimension of the global threat of coral bleaching to the world's reefs that would otherwise be hidden underwater. Featuring over 500 hours of underwater footage of reefs from over 30 countries, divers, underwater photographers and scientists reveal the majesty of our coral reef systems, and how they are being affected by coral bleaching.

The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
