Twice I came to Thailand to assist with the design, creation and placing of the hands under water in the CoralGarden.
The CoralGarden has grown with 2 flowers, at the same time. It was the first time an artificial reef was assembled under water by freedivers. Both scuba and freediving teams had great fun.
I wanted to go on holiday, so I visiting Frank and Vera on Koh Tao and enjoy diving.
Frank and Vera inspired people to think further. Building an artificial reef is cool and fun to do, but it is very small scale. In my opinion this is not the solution to solve bigger issues like coral bleaching and climate change. Inspired by the flower building project, I started thinking about what I can do to improve our ocean.
Here are 7 things you can do from home to contribute to a healthy coral reef.
Although whale sharks are the largest fish of the ocean, we know very little about these creatures. Weird since they are so big that they have a hard time hiding.
Are you curious about how Ninja, the CoralCat, helps us in her own way of making artificial reefs?
Our world ocean day 2017 was a very educational day, thanks to the New Heaven Reef Conservation Program.
Our dream is a CoralGarden full of flowers. The second flower will be planted underwater!
Normally, there are only a few whale sharks around Koh Tao each year. This year is not normal….
