The Chagos Islands - Hope for Coral Reefs?

  • Coming Soon

In the middle of the Indian Ocean, more than 1.500 km from the nearest landmass, lies an untouched mysterious archipelago - the Chagos Islands. This group of 60 islands is one of the last pristine wildernesses on Earth. As one of the world’s biggest marine national parks, the Chagos Archipelago is strictly protected, but for the first time, a scientific expedition has been granted access to the politically disputed territory.

In times of climate change, as coral reef communities face a global crisis, the researchers seek to show how coral reefs fare in places of minimal human influence.

A group of filmmakers accompanies the expedition to document this lost world. A journey into the unknown, in the footsteps of internationally renowned scientists, to unlock the secrets of a lost world, and gain astonishing insights into one of the last true wildernesses on Earth.
