What are super reefs?
Super Reefs are coral reefs that are able to survive ocean warming, and some can breed resilient larvae that can reseed other reefs. Because Super Reefs can teach us what conditions favor coral reef survival and regrowth, they are of great interest to scientists and conservationists.

What is the Woods Hole Film Festival Film & Science Initiative?
The goal of the film and science initiative is to provide opportunities to connect filmmakers and scientists to help them create films and other visual media that improve the public’s understanding of ocean science.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and The Woods Hole Film Festival cordially invite you to an evening of film and science on the topic of Super Reefs.
