Event description

Description

Saving Atlantis is a feature documentary about one of the most consequential issues of our time: the dramatic decline of global coral reef ecosystems and the impact on human populations that depend on them.

Produced by a team of award-winning filmmakers and researchers, the film follows those who are fighting to uncover the causes of coral decline and find solutions before it’s too late. It is an emotional exploration of some of our planet's greatest natural wonders at a tipping point in their ecological history.

Coral reefs cover only 0.1 percent of the Earth’s surface, but they’re home to 25 percent of all marine species, and they’re being lost at an alarming rate. Pollution, overfishing and climate change are some of the human-influenced culprits in the dramatic decline of these magnificent natural structures. Coral reefs serve as a lynchpin in the global food web. Their decline leads our entire planet in a perilous direction. But research from scientists around the world hints at bright spots where real strides can be made in preservation and protection of these habitats.

The event will take place in Building 45, Medical Lecture Theatre. A link to the campus map can be found here.
