what is a SCULPTURAL CORAL BANK?
Counting Coral is leading the development of Sculptural Coral Banks, a new and advanced method to aid coral growth.
Sculptural coral banks are designed with coral propagation in mind. These beautiful structures are multi-functional, tackling previous issues in restoration and tourism. Our sculptures are planted out with climate-resilient coral, developing into a coral bank over time.
Our coral banks will naturally propagate reef systems, whilst maintaining a healthy coral supply for harvesting when needed.
This process starts with first identifying and harvesting climate resilient coral, then placing these CRC's on our sculptures and allowing them to grow to spawning maturity.
Allowing CRC's to grow and spawn in a safe environment will greatly increase the chances of natural propagation.
This new technique of coral propagation alleviates the stressors and flaws in all other restoration methods. In addition, this technique can be largely scaled, giving the reefs a chance to survive the race against time.
