International Year of the Reef 2018
A pivotal year for coral reefs
Coral reefs support half a billion people and a quarter of all marine life. However, they are on the front line of climate change. Over the last three years, we have seen the biggest coral die-off ever as documented in the Netflix Original Documentary Chasing Coral. We are rapidly running out of time to save them, and we won’t get a better opportunity than this year to turn things around – International Year of the Reef, the year they are in the global spotlight.
Our plan is to make this global spotlight as bright as possible by working with the film industry’s leading creative talent. We're planning to make it a blockbuster year to get everyone involved.
There’s a growing excitement that saving reefs is now possible despite all the doom and gloom – a message we want to be heard loud and clear. We plan to turn this excitement into the action and investment that's needed and with partners, like the UN Environment, Google and The Tiffany & Co. Foundation we're off to a great start.
