- Background of the Live Coral Spawning Broadcast
Awareness of issues related to the future state of the earth is increasing on a global scale, and various initiatives are attracting attention. Now that all the environmental issues such as plastic waste in the oceans and coral bleaching are getting more attention than ever, this live-streaming event aims to raise awareness of the need to conserve the oceans by conveying the beauty of the underwater world and the vitality of marine life to as many people as possible, not only the people who live close to the sea. In addition, due to the spread of the COVID-19, it has been difficult for people to go out and travel to distant places, but we have planned this event to allow people to experience the ocean and nature from the comfort of their homes, and to enjoy it.
