Join us for a documentary film screening of "Chasing Coral" (6 p.m.) followed by a panel discussion of experts in the field of marine science and climate change (7:30 p.m.). Come to one or both!
Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first timelapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won’t have audiences sitting idle for long. Come uncover the urgency at Dickinson. All are invited!
