Chasing Coral – How will corals survive climate change: a film screening and discussion
Join us to watch Chasing Coral – an awe-inspiring and poignant film that provides a visual documentation of the toll that ocean warming is taking on coral reefs.
After the film, we will host afollow up conversation with Dr. Madhavi Colton from the Coral Reef Alliance, and Dr. Shaye Wolf and Dr. Abel Valdivia from the Center for Biological Diversity, both Oakland-based conservation organizations. Dr. Colton will explain what scientists are predicting for the future of coral reefs and what people can do about it. Dr. Wolf and Dr. Valdivia will share some tangible actions that individuals can take to help protect the world’s coral reefs.
In honor of National Women’s Day, we will also highlight some of the most influential women in the field of marine conservation.
