The World Wildlife Fund estimates that a quarter of the world's reefs are damaged beyond repair and that another 70% are under serious threat.
Introduce IntelliReefs into dying or at-risk reefs as a means of increasing fish aggregation, coral spawn settlement and species biodiversity; fostering the exponential growth and restoration of coral reef systems.
Thriving reef systems demand a diverse set of habitat requirements, and the physical properties of regular cement substrates cannot accommodate these marine organism needs. Oceanite is a complex matrix of minerals, developed specifically for diverse coral growth, reef restoration, and immediate integration with local eco-systems. It is composed of proprietary marine mineral matrices that include high-grade limestone, aragonite, and diverse pozzolanic (calcium binding) components at nano-scale.
IntelliReefs are bio-inspired marine structures made with Oceanite. They are formulated from twenty years of nano-materials expertise guided by leading coral laboratories.
IntelliReefs units assemble and grow intuitively, enabling year-to-year, block-by-block coral species expansion. Each can be outfitted with a specific, novel growth formulation.
Exposed aggregates on IntelliReefs include small pockets where biodiverse coral larvae can attach, be protected and grow. Our substrates are engineered for centuries of durability.
IntelliReefs foster the growth and development of Reeflings, coral offspring who are better able to survive extreme weather, changes in water chemistry, improve fish aggregation and species biodiversity.
"The most exciting part is to know that we can now design the state of the ART and coral research: artificial reef wave break:
combining science & coral restoration into a living breakwater"
How to get involved
Plant coral on IntelliReefs "Substrates for Super Corals"
Design and deploy IntelliReefs globally where reefs are degraded or dying, or where new reefs are needed
Design and build underwater art dive parks that regenerate coral habitat and stimulate local economies & education
Contact the Reef Life Foundation team for consultation on ocean-friendly maritime development and planning
Provide Funding for future "Reef Planning and Design Manual" that our Coral Research and Marine Biology teams are creating.
