The Amazing Coral Lifecycle
– From Dusk till Spawn!
Director: Vanessa Cara-Kerr
Country of Origin: Germany
The wonders of nature are always stunning! How do corals time their spawning to the exact moment once a year? And to see a coral egg develope into a baby coral that actually MOVES around the reef to search for a perfect place to build its home – a new coral colony – is just mind blowing!
Cara-Kerr relates, “I want to help in ocean conservation… but as Cousteau already said, people only protect what they love, so my approach is to film and edit in a very creative way, that is appealing to non-ocean-lovers… to show them the beauty we are all destroying more and more each day.”
