Coral Reef Adventure
Recommended for Educators • 46m
Coral Reef Adventure brings the beauty and mystery of the coral reef environment to the big screen with a film that both celebrates this vital ecosystem and warns of its imminent decline. The film follows the personal journey of two under-water filmmakers, Howard and Michele Hall, on a 10-month expedition across the South Pacific to explore and document some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered coral reefs. Coral reefs may become extinct within 30 years due to global warming, over-fishing and pollution, scientists warn. Coral Reef Adventure is both an emotional account of two extraordinary individuals doing what they can to help save the coral reefs, and an exciting story of drama and adventure. One of the most riveting sequences occurs when Howard Hall takes the IMAX camera down 370 feet to film a deep ocean reef, setting a record for the deepest a diver has taken an IMAX camera in the open ocean.
