In his new documentary Chasing Coral, filmmaker Jeff Orlowski takes on the tough job of showing climate change’s devastating effects on coral reef populations in the world’s oceans. The film leaves viewers with a powerful message:  there’s still hope. 

 In a recent Q&A with JGI staff, he said, “Every action we take as individuals adds up to be one step further away from that worst case scenario.” 

Organize a local beach cleanup with your Roots & Shoots group or with your family and friends. Or, make simple changes to your daily routines to conserve water. Reach out to your friends and share why the future of oceans and marine life means so much to you.
