Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. Could the biggest story of our changing climate be hidden beneath the waves? 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 reef ecosystems support 25% of marine life in our ocean. A temperature increase of just 2 degrees Celsius may not seem like much, but for marine life, this is like living with a constant fever.

From the director of Chasing Ice comes an epic adventure to capture our changing oceans, Chasing Coral.

Join us for a screening of this new documentary followed by a panel discussion of Nature Conservancy experts.

The Conservancy’s Marine Ecologist Stephanie Wear, North Carolina Coastal Engagement Coordinator Lora Eddy, and North Carolina Science Director Liz Kalies will discuss the Conservancy’s international work to reduce threats to coral reefs and work to improve coastal resiliency with nature-based solutions here in North Carolina.

The event is free but seating is limited. Please RSVP-
