Overview

IMAX director Greg MacGillivray's 2003 film, Coral Reef Adventure, follows the exploits and crusades of the husband and wife underwater filmmaking duo of Howard and Michelle Hall as they embark on a ten-month expedition of the world's most vibrant and endangered coral reefs. Beginning at the Great Barrier Reef off the Australian coast, the Halls explore the vast underwater ecosystem and the scores of wildlife that thrive off of it. Traveling on throughout a number of the South Pacific's most spectacular reefs, the filmmakers also visit some reefs on the verge of extinction, making the sobering point that an entire reef's death occurs very quickly, while its creation takes thousands of years. Coral Reef Adventure marks the third oceanic, ecologically-themed IMAX film from MacGillivray, following The Living Sea and Dolphins. Also featured in the film are famed sea explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of the pioneering oceanographer Jacques Cousteau) and noted ichthyologist Richard Pyle.

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.
