Green Screen 4: Chasing Coral
Why you should watch Chasing Coral:
Chasing Coral is a documentary that sheds light on the devastating impact of climate change on coral reefs around the world. Before seeing the documentary we thought about coral reefs as something beautiful and exotic to see while on holiday. Now we realise that to still be able to see something the next time we go on holiday, we do need to take urgent steps to protect these very sensitive and vulnerable underwater gardens.
The documentary inspired us to try and reduce our carbon footprint further by making small changes in our daily lifes. For instance, by trying to become more energy-efficient in our home and only heating when strictly necessary. As a brand it highlights again the need to reduce our carbon emissions as much as possible and look again into become climate-neutral.
Summary and essential take-aways:
Chasing Coral follows a team of divers, photographers, and scientists as they set out to document the rapid decline of coral reefs due to rising ocean temperatures caused by climate change. The documentary showcases the stunning beauty of coral reefs and highlights the critical role they play in the health of our oceans and the planet as a whole.
Coral reefs are dying at an unprecedented rate due to climate change and ocean acidification.
The loss of coral reefs is not just an environmental tragedy, but it also has devastating economic and social consequences for communities that rely on them for food, income, and protection.
There is an urgent need for action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change on our planet.
We all have a role to play in protecting our planet, and small changes in our daily lives can make a big difference in the fight against climate change.
Overall, Chasing Coral is a powerful and eye-opening documentary that highlights the urgent need for action to protect our planet's ecosystems and biodiversity. It is a must-watch for anyone who cares about the environment and wants to be part of the solution to the climate crisis.
