How can we save our coral reefs?

What do we need to know about the unique role of coral in our ocean ecosystems? On the next Your Call's One Planet Series, we'll rebroadcast our discussion about the documentary Chasing Coral.

Coral reefs around the globe are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. In the film, a team of divers, scientists, and photographers set out to discover why and reveal the answers to the world. What can we do to reverse this trend and save the reefs?
