Film can be a powerful tool to inform and educate, as well as entertain us. Students on the University of Reading Marine Biology and Conservation Module worked in groups to create four-minute films to do just this. They wanted to raise awareness of the ecological impacts of human activities on a range of marine habitats, threats to marine and coastal ecosystems and also look at practical working solutions towards the conservation of these. We are pleased to present five of the best before some of the films this season.
