From the makers of "Chasing Ice" comes the remarkable adventure of one team capturing our changing oceans. 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. Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. 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 650 + 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 took a village to make this film, and we are so grateful for all of the support from our filmmaking team, our Executive and Associate Producers, amazing partners, and the hundreds of people that came together to make this possible.

Chasing Coral will be launching an ambitious impact campaign later in 2017. #makewaves
