Get ready for this year’s Hefner Lecture on November 9 by attending a screening of the beautiful film, “Chasing Coral”  This year’s 49th Hefner Lecturer, James W. Porter, Ph.D., served as science advisor for this film. 


Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves.
