Why

Sculptural Nurseries?

Coral reefs are seriously threatened, and building sculptures provides physical support and awareness to the cause.

Benefits

of Our Work

Our sculptural installs decrease a percentage of diver traffic away from fragile reef systems.

 

When installed, our sculptures can be planted out with coral as a first stage coral nursery.

Our sculptures are planted with rare

climate tolerant coral.

After being planted out with climate tolerant coral, our sculptures become an artificial reef.

Our coral is grown to spawning maturity allowing for natural propagation, fragments can be harvested and planted onto a secondary nursery or back onto the reef for restoration work on the existing reef.

Dive operators, hoteliers, restaurants and the local communities  have a new marketing opportunities and an added revenue stream thus becoming stakeholders. 

In many cases, our sculptures can be used as a study site for scientists to have a controlled environment to study coral.

 

Awareness will be driven by divers diving on our sites and by social media. Our sculptures are artistically designed and aesthetically appealing.

How

Do Sculptural Nurseries 

Help?

 

By donating our sculptural coral nurseries/artificial reefs to areas that have high diver traffic, we are protecting damaged reefs. Our sculptural parks are protected areas that will redistribute diver traffic, and provide local communities with the ability to protect their natural resources. By using art to direct attention to reefs, we are raising awareness about coral reef destruction and educating both locals and tourists.
