For anyone who may have seen this movie in an IMAX theatre, you will appreciate the work that went into this film. Coral Reefs are in danger of disappearing and this film does a great job in both showing the reefs the average public are familiar with and showing what the average person is helping contribute to. That is the slow destruction of an invaluable ecosystem. The videography is excellent and the story telling is nicely done. This is a dvd to share with the family to learn about a part of the planet that we need to protect.

Really enjoyed this dvd. Our fifth grade class was studying coral reefs and this dvd was used as a follow-up on the subject. It really brought the coral reefs and its habitat to life. It also had a nice balance with the positive and negative influences surrounding coral reefs. The kids really enjoyed learning new information and maybe some will be inspired enough to scuba dive or snorkle. Most now have a deeper respect for coral reefs and its inhabatants.
