Reef Life dive reefs which surround and protect a troubled coral reef add proper alkalinity, a place for boats to attach, and people to move and touch our engineered artificial reefs, not a damaged natural reef. We estimate these will save reefs with high volumes of tourists.
Ensure Sustainable Tourism
In areas with high-volume tourism, repeated direct contact with the reef poses an immediate threat. Hundreds of boat groundings and hundreds of thousands of tourist interactions each year reduce sections of coral reef to rubble. Human contact also reduces coral’s ability to cope with stressors such as rising sea temperatures and diseases.
Yet if tourism is managed in a way that protects the reef, it can offer great economic benefits to local communities. The benefits of sustainable tourism provides a powerful incentive for communities to protect their reef and its fish.
