MORE THAN 62% OF THE INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO CONSISTS OF OCEAN AND OUR WORLD IS COVERED BY NEARLY 70% OF OCEAN
Oceans are the primary source of oxygen for the planet, responsible for 70% of all the oxygen we breathe.
No matter how far mankind lives from the seas, it is still important to protect them.
The earth's oceans contain a wide variety of life, but all of them have their roots in coral reefs. Imagine a forest without trees, and all you'll have is bare land without life.
Coral reefs play an important role in marine life, and the importance of coral ecosystems is vital to all life.
They are a source of food for millions, they protect coastlines from storms and erosion, and provide habitat, spawning and nursery grounds for economically important fish species. This ecosystem can provide jobs and income for local economies as well, from fishing, recreation, and tourism.
By building 5 hectares of reef, we will not only be giving back to the ocean and rebuilding the lost marine habitat and biodiversity in the area, but also impacting the local communities that depend on this reef for sustenance and tourism.
THE MARRS REEF STAR
The MARRS Reef Star structure is a hexagonal steel structure coated with resin and sand as an artificial substrate for up to 18 coral fragments.
We have seen great success using this method at our site, and the modularity of the structure itself has helped us gain more flexibility in its placement.
