Coral reef adventure

the south Pacific

lagoons that hint paradise

magnificent coral reefs that

light the dream in corners of minds

this is the world as we wish and could always be

in this great corner of life

thousands of colorful characters coexist

diversities strengthens coral reefs

the more species

the more survival systems

coral reefs be going strong for sixty million years

some corals wave like flowers in the breath

others masquerade the stones

but all corals are animals

this under order playgrounds are built by hard corals

which produce lime stone and turn it into homes

stack one on top of the other

millions of coral homes

gradually form a gigantic reef

how wonderful the largest living structures on earth

are built by tiny animals

coral reefs protect nearly all tropical coast

standing between islander's homes and violent seas

one may injured

doctors use calcium carbonate from coral

to mend our broken bones

when we were sick

chemical components from the reef

may restore our health

no place on earth

holds greater potential for medical curers



over three hundred million people

rely on fish from reefs

for Pacific islander like me

our coral reefs are as necessary as the air we breath

Russy coral a native of Fiji

has always lived close to the sea

for centuries

my ancestors were careful not to overfish

so our reef was healthy

but this year

something happened

something terrible

a blacker death set over the reef

what was killing our reef?

I made up my mind to find the answers

I decide to reach up to

some of my death partners around the world

Howard and Micheal Hall

has spent thirty years exploring and filming reefs

their underwater photography is world known

when Howard and Micheal got Russy's message

they voyaged the mountains

far from the reefs they loved

I was drawing that flight I kept wondering

what we could do to help Russy

then I realized that

our friend Richard Pile might know what to do

he is a marine biologist

across the world

red sea east Africa, Maldives, Philippines

we seeing this kind of problems showing up

in unprecedented rate

Richard showed us how coral reefs to die

and the alarming rate all around the world

ocean warming is the major cause

Richard urged just document coral reefs

on film for science

before they disappear

we knew the Max camera with a credible clarity

was the best way to do this

our mission was clear

bring back images of inside

and why Russy's reef was dying

we need to compare Russy's reef

to other reefs all across the south Pacific

starting with the largest of them all

the Great Barrier Reef

the prospect of diving coral reef

all across the south Pacific

was a bit like a dream come true

we will make hundreds of dives

and some of these would be deeper and more dangerous

than anything we have done before

it would be a most important expedition

in our thirty years' diving together

parts of the Great Barrier Reef

had been protected from overfishing for two decades

the first goal of this ten-month expedition

is to see how well that protection really worked

when I first dove here 22 years ago

these giant clams were not here

they had been fished up by commercial fishmen

today we have seen 12 giant clams

that's a great sign

that means this reef spells its back

a local marine biologist named Tracy Medway

let us to the giant potatocut

they were called potatocut

because they had these patchy potato shape

marking on the sides

throughout most of the Pacific

the really large fish had been wiped out by fishmen
