Coastal students encourage their peers to be more conscience.
In the remote island town of Boljoon, Sheena Bombarda and the Boljoon Tourism Office saw a chance to use a Chasing Coral screening in her hometown to expose students at Boljoon National High School Science Club to an issue that is close to home, but often out of sight. Children, students, and community members came to the outdoor screening and used the Chasing Coral VR experience for guests to explore the reefs in their Virtual Dive Corner. While Sheena notes that the people of Boljoon do sometimes utilize sustainable fishing techniques, the event was meant to remind people of how important it is to protect the beauty hidden beneath the waves and continue to be conscious of how they interact with the ocean.
