To coral-list members,

I found this video to be both simple and brilliant, and most of all, utterly charming. I though it might be of interest to coral-list member as we try to get our please for reef protection out to the young and the young at heart.

Yours in things Seussical,

Subject: Film "The Coralax"

Below is an email sent to us via Facebook from Dr. J.L. Gressitt's daughter, Ellyn Gressitt Brown. It is a good and relevant short film.

Here is a video made by the great grandson of Dr. J. L. Gressitt, past director of Bishop Museum's Department of Zoology from 1952 until the early 80s.. The film was made by Troy Lau, great grandson of Gressitt and three other 7th graders that attend Maui Huliau Environmental Filmmaking Club.

The video, The Coralax, is inspired by Dr. Suess's The Lorax, and has been accepted in three Film Festivals, including the Hawaii International Film Festival. I thought you might be interested in the link to the Coralax, which is now on YouTube.
