A story hidden below the waves.

A campaign to inspire action in unexpected places. 

The Film

“An emotional race against time”
 The New York Times

Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling ocean adventure to discover why and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world.

The Campaign

Since our journey began, we knew that if we could capture visual evidence of coral bleaching, we could reveal the phenomenon in a powerful way. Now it’s time to connect the story to action. Learn more about how you can get involved.

Host a screening

Screen the film as part of our campaign, and we’ll send you a Screening Field Guide to help you plan your event and drive impact.

The Team


It takes a village

Chasing Coral was directed by Jeff Orlowski and produced by Larissa Rhodes. The film took more than three years to shoot, and is the result of 500+ hours underwater, submissions of footage from volunteers from 30 countries, as well as support from more than 500 people from various locations around the world.

It’s not too late for coral reefs…  indeed, for many other ecosystems that are facing challenges from climate change. It’s still possible to reduce the rate at which the climate is changing, and that’s within our power today.”
