Excellent and eye opening
9 January 2018 | by billgailhiSee all my reviews

I saw this film recently at the Waimea Ocean Film Festival. It was the documentary I most wanted to see. The Big Island of Hawaii has coral reefs that have suffered from bleaching. If things do not change, we will lose our coral reefs and many fish will disappear. That will affect our fisherman and tourism. I fervently hope people will WAKE UP!
