Free showing of ‘Chasing Coral’

February 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Clemson University is hosting a free showing of the Netflix documentary film “Chasing Coral,” which features divers, photographers and scientists seeking to unravel the mysteries of why coral reefs are in dramatic decline throughout the world.

Coral reefs, which are considered one of the ocean’s most endangered and invaluable species, have been diminishing at an alarming rate for the past three decades. Marine biologists believe the chief culprit is the multiple stresses associated with climate change. “Chasing Coral” examines this and other issues in intimate detail.

The movie will be shown at 7 p.m. Feb. 13 in the McKissick Theatre inside the Hendrix Student Center. The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not necessary.
