Chasing Coral follows a team of divers, photographers, and scientists as they set out to discover why coral reefs are vanishing at an unprecedented rate and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world. The film took more than three years to shoot and is the result of 500+ hours of underwater footage, coral bleaching submissions from volunteers in 30 countries, as well as support from more than 500 people in various locations around the world. The filmmakers have also launched an impact campaign to ensure the loss of coral reefs does not go unnoticed and to support communities in using the film to grow these local solutions.
