Your Call: How can we save our coral reefs?

Jun 5, 2017

  

We’ll have a conversation about the health of the ocean’s corals and why it matters.  

A new documentary in the International Ocean Film Festival called Chasing Coral looks at the deterioration of coral reefs from rising sea temperatures and how all ocean life could hang in the balance. What do you want to know about the unique role of coral in our ocean ecosystems?

Guests:

Zackery Rago, an ocean activist, reef aquarist, evolutionary biologist, and long-time scuba diver who’s featured in the film Chasing Coral

Ruth Gates, Director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and scientific advisor for the film, Chasing Coral
