The biorock technique
As we develop the project becomes more and more in dept on details therefore we are excited to have the biorock specialist Dr. Tom Goreau at our side. His late partner future architect / scientist Wolf Hilbertz founded the technique and Dr. Goreau joint forces back in 1982. We work alongside for experience and installments. Please see GlobalCoral.org for more info
We are building sculptures and placing them on the sea bottom floor therefore we need to collect data; looking at water quality, minerals, marine life, existing or old land- or water pollutions. We are working alongside well respected CresPR.org from Puerto Rico + marine biologist from the Wageningen University Netherlands (WUR) and of course local marine biologists on site. Plus we are in contact with local Nature Foundations for the latest info before installing new coral sculptures.
