Call for Coral High Definition Footage

 The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program is in the beginning stages of
creating multi-media content for our web site and other outreach
products. We will be producing at least four 3-5 minute videos covering
the following areas: Overview of Coral Reefs and their Threats,
Land-based sources of Pollution and Corals Reefs; Adverse Impacts of
Fishing and Coral Reefs; and Climate Change and Corals.  In addition to
the videos your footage may be included in educational kiosks, local
PSAs, content for cruise lines and hotel channels, YouTube, etc.

If you are a budding or professional videographer and have High
Definition footage that you would like to donate to NOAA we would
greatly appreciate your contributions.  You, of course will receive
credit and we will work with you individually to nail down the terms of
your release. This is a unique opportunity to lend your images to help
NOAA get the word out to the general public on coral reefs and their
threats. Our footage needs include: coral reef threats, impacts of
pollution, impacts of fishing, climate change, general coral, healthy
corals, unhealthy corals, corals and fish, underwater shots, shoreline
shots, coastal development, marine debris and corals, bleached corals,
plumes, coral spawning and more.  Please only submit footage that is
shot in High Definition.
