Saving Atlantis is the first documentary to take a deep dive into one of the most consequential issues of our time: the dramatic decline of global coral reef ecosystems and the impact on human populations that depend on them. Coral reefs are one of the world's most diverse habitats. They are often called "the rainforests of the ocean", but the rapid acceleration of coral bleaching events around the world is jeopardizing their future.
 
Produced by a team of award-winning filmmakers and researchers, Saving Atlantis follows those who are fighting to uncover the causes of coral decline and find solutions before it’s too late. Combining the ecological impacts and human toll of hundreds of millions of people worldwide who depend on coral reefs for their very survival, Saving Atlantis charts an emotional exploration of some of our planet's greatest natural wonders at a tipping point in their ecological history.

The film follows several stories: renowned scientists looking to unlock the microbial secrets to coral survival; a mysterious coral reef in Colombia that has withstood five hundred years of human pressures but now faces its greatest threat; and a group of young aboriginal students in Australia working to restore the ancient connections of their people to a marine habitat just as it could disappear forever.

Exploring the science behind corals, speaking with the top researchers who study these animals and taking global journey that celebrates the majesty and mystery of coral habitats, Saving Atlantis sheds light on the daunting challenges communities face and follows those who are making a desperate attempt to preserve them for future generations.

Filmed in Australia, the South Pacific, Hawai’i, the Caribbean and the Red Sea, Saving Atlantis is a worldwide tour of one of the most important issues of our time.
  

THE PROBLEM

Coral reefs cover only 0.1 percent of the Earth’s surface, but they’re home to 25 percent of all marine species, and they’re being lost at an alarming rate. Pollution, overfishing and climate change are some of the human-influenced culprits in the dramatic decline of these magnificent natural structures. Coral reefs serve as a linchpin in the global food web. Their decline leads our entire planet in a perilous direction. But research from scientists around the world hints at bright spots where real strides can be made in preservation and protection of these habitats.
