This month we hosted a screening of 'Chasing Coral' together with BBQ dinner and drinks, and much poolside banter for our Zenners!
Our fish people bonded over grilling mouth-watering steak slabs (with vegan kebab options), learning how to improve their freestyle stroke from our instructor Michelle, updating each other on freediving and non-freediving news - and we even had a mermaid turn up for our event!
The film was an eye-opening but saddening experience as we watched the grim reality of coral bleaching, powerfully captured by a team of young and passionate film makers and coral nerds. It connected with us in a way like no other, because in a way, as freedivers, we are the first line of defence when it comes to marine conservation issues. The reason being that we are in the sea very often, we are connected to it, and we see and feel the effects of global warming, plastic pollution, amongst other issues, very greatly.
'Chasing Coral' was a wake up call to action, to commit towards protecting our beautiful coral reefs and a place we call home. We can do this in many ways, from educating and inspiring students on what a clean energy future looks like, pledging to vote on environmental issues, to donating to coral reef campaigns.
