Reviving the Rain Forests of the Sea

 

“Coral reefs cover only about 0.1% of the world’s oceans, but 50% of the species that live in the ocean live on a coral reef at some point in their life.” This quote is from this 26-minute video documentary focusing on protecting the coral reefs near the island of Curacao in the Caribbean. This is the fifth film in an award-winning series of Pace University student documentaries on environmental themes.
