We brought home the coral reef crisis — with Netflix
For three years, Emmy-winning filmmaker Jeff Orlowski and his team followed the work of The Ocean Agency in recording and revealing a global coral bleaching event and the impacts of climate change on the world's reefs, resulting in the Netflix Original Documentary Chasing Coral.
Chasing Coral has taken home numerous awards, including the Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival, Best Documentary at the Peabody Awards, Outstanding Nature Documentary at the Emmys, and was even shortlisted for an Academy Award.
We rely on donations from our supporters and partners. Thanks to you, we are able to support critical ocean science and targeted conservation action, accelerating impact through creative partnerships and communication.
