The 5-minute Community of Ocean Action video briefly outlines the issues facing coral reefs globally, it then touches on how the Communities came about, specifically focussing on the coral reef community and number of voluntary commitments so far. In addition to Special Envoy for the Ocean Peter Thomson, interviews clips include a fisherman from Kiwayu, Kenya describing the decline in reef fish stocks; Lisa Svensson; Brahmantya Poerwadi, Director General of Marine Spatial Management, Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries in Indonesia and ICRI co-chair; and David Obura, Director of CORDIO East Africa. The video ends with a call to action to join the coral reef COA and will be used to encourage more voluntary commitments and support the strengthened engagement of developing countries in the work of the community.
