Storyline

Take a once in a lifetime journey across the South Pacific for a spectacular IMAX adventure. Joy, ecstasy, a spiritual high: these words describe the exhilaration of diving a pristine coral reef, and ocean explorers Howard and Michele Hall bring their love of the ocean into action. With Jean-Michael Cousteau, deep reef scientist Richard Pyle and Fijian diver Rusi Vulakoro, they explore and capture on film the dazzling underwater world of coral reefs, magical places here on Earth. This tropical excursion through the South Pacific will surprise and delight you as you fall in love with the reefs, and your heart will ache at the tragic, irretrievable loss of these fragile worlds.

"A great environmental documentary"
22 April 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film gives a beautiful display of how wondrous and beautiful the worlds

coral reefs are. It also shows how the worlds coral reefs are dying. The reefs are dying for a number of reasons. 1. Over fishing, because fish eat the alga that grows over the coral, and will engulf the coral if there are no fish to eat it. 2. is because of global warming. If the ocean gets too warm the will not be able to withstand the warmth and will gradually die out. 3. Is because of pollution. The pollution can come from a number places. It could come from sewerage

dumped into the sea, it could from rivers that have turned muddy because of

tree logging. Also the removal of mangrove trees, because mangrove trees help to consume the pollution and prevent it from reaching the sea.

This film shows not only the Great Barrier Reef, it also takes you the coral reefs of tropical island such as Fiji Tahiti and Bora Bora. For some of the Fijian

people, the reefs provide much more than just a beautiful paradise they also

provide food because of all the sea creatures that live there. So if the reefs were to die, many Fijians could starve.

So the basic morals this film teaches is how beautiful and important the worlds coral reefs are and that they could all die in the next three decades unless we do something about it.
