Reef Gardens

Why are corals reef important to the environment?

Since the beginning of time, the end of life has been part of the natural cycle that perpetuates all the living things that surround us here on earth. The ocean plays a substantial role in this endless cycle both in the sea and on land. The earth's weather and seasons are tied inseparably to the water that covers three quarters of it's surface.
Beneath the surface of the oceans in the most vibrant life-filled environment on earth is a deep, vast world that is as ancient as life itself. Plants and sea life are constantly renewed under the eternal wash of winds, tides, and currents. Nowhere is the continuous cycle of life more apparent than the reefs and the depths of the sea.
Coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Coral polyps, responsible for building reefs, can take many forms. They create large reef building colonies, graceful flowing fans, and even small organisms. Thousands of species of corals have been discovered; some live in warm, shallow, tropical seas and others in the cold, dark depths of the ocean. Not only do they provide refuge for undersea creatures, but also contribute many fascinating discoveries such as medicine.

So why should I care about coral reefs?

In this day and age of rapid growth and modernization, comes at a significant cost to the irreplaceable value of this ecosystem. Overfishing, shipping traffic, offshore development, oil spills, and real estate development near the shore are great contributors to the destruction of coral reefs. Despite proactive measures taken by various governments to reduce coral reef destruction, it is not enough to completely stop the course of destruction.
In a harrowing discovery in 2022, recent studies has revealed that 50% of the world's coral reefs have already been destroyed in the last thirty years, and that over 90% of the world's remaining coral reefs could be lost over the next century.
With that in mind, it is important to know that this is the pinnacle mission of Reef Gardens, and that is to promote and develop methods of reversing the destruction of coral reefs, such as the underwater burial modules designed to give life back to the ocean.
