A few years ago WRI teamed up with Celine Cousteau and Jim Toomey (creator of the cartoon Sherman's Lagoon) to create a 4-minute animated film about reefs called "Polyps in Peril": http://www.wri.org/resources/videos/coral-reefs-polyps-peril. It talks about reef biology, importance of reefs to people, threats to reefs, and solutions to protect them.

Hi Jeremy, two videos of ours that have been pretty popular are
What is a Coral? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47vGQh4BGKM <https://www..youtube.com/watch?v=47vGQh4BGKM>
Others about corals and climate change are on the Microdocs channel on YouTube
and an animation we did with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute on the fundamentals of bleaching
best of luck with this!
