Raising awareness of a problem sadly being faced by ocean conservationists over the next 10 years: the loss of coral reefs. Cameras follow a crew, including Environmentalist Philippe Cousteau Jr. They dive and delve into the RED SEA.
A theory; the coral there can survive such warm waters because it has heat-tolerant algae, therefore adapting to rising sea temperatures. This Red Sea coral could hold the answer to helping the rest of the world's coral reefs.
Called the 'ocean's rainforest', coral reefs are the life support to a quarter of all known species of fish. I do feel hopeful about the future of coral reefs, having heard and read about on-going conservation efforts.
Look out for: Viewers will no doubt see the negative effect had on coral; we need to realise the health of coral reefs can't just be ignored. You will see the beauty of the ocean; the coral reef itself, the rock forms, and the life that exists in those waters.
