Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long.

HOSTED BY GLOBAL ISSUES NETWORK CONFERENCE  IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AGENTS OF CHANGE. COORDINATED BY CHRISTIAN ROBBINS.

ABOUT THE COORDINATOR:

My name is Christian Robbins and I am a sophomore at Le Jardin Academy. I grew up immersed in ocean activities which is how I developed a personal commitment to ocean conservation. For my personal project, I wanted to engage the community in an effort to inspire others and share my passion. I envisioned an event that would be a means of connecting the community by highlighting a common issue: coral degradation. As an island people, we are all directly affected by what takes place in the ocean. Through this film, I wish to bring awareness to this issue in attempts to educate the public of ways in which we can help.

WHAT TO BRING:

This is a waste free event, please bring a reusable water bottle. If possible, please carpool. Lawn chair, blankets, etc.

Free reef safe sunscreen samples for all guests courtesy of Raw Elements sunscreen.
