The seventh annual “Ding” Darling Wednesday Film Series will wind up its biweekly showings on April 3 with “Saving Atlantis.”

It will take place at 1 p.m. in the Visitor & Education Center at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, at 1 Wildlife Drive, Sanibel.

Coral reefs serve as a linchpin in the world food web; their decline leads the entire planet in a perilous direction naturally, culturally, and economically.

“Saving Atlantis” focuses on the drastic loss of coral reef ecosystems around the world, how the loss impacts human communities that depend on the ecosystems, and those who are looking for causes and fighting for solutions before it is too late.

“Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge hosts the free film showings with sponsorship from Sanibel-Captiva Beach Resorts. Seating is limited and on a first-come basis.

A short discussion will follow each film to allow visitors to gain more from their documentary-viewing experience by listening to other people’s points of view and analyzing what they just watched.
