Step 1: Choose one or more coral reefs/sea creature(s) you would like to create the music video for. Or you can choose from one of the coral reefs/ sea creature(s) below, but it’s not required.
Step 2: Create 4 sections to your video

    following: The beauty and the importance of this habitat to its sea life and to the coral reefs in it
  • Show the human impact on the habitat/coral reefs and sea creature(s) and think about the following: What human activity has impacted this habitat?
    What images can I find of the destruction that humans have caused and the sealife/coral reefs that depend on it? How endangered are coral reefs/ sea creature(s)? How many of them are left? What is the reason for the decline in numbers?

    important to us, how we can protect them and what is our call to action
    (what can we do about it?)
