Green School “LEAP” Project

Back in September, 6 students from @Green School Bali came to learn how to build artificial reef structures with us. As part of their @leap academy project they wanted to build their own artificial reef to help the damaged reef recover. They built 10 roti buaya and one fish dome in just four days. The students used their creativity to personalize each structure withunique designs. Unfortunately the students could not stay to witness the deployment of their sponsored reefs.

On the 17/11/2017 we were finally able to deploy the reef structures. The local fishermen who are learning to dive fixed the structures in position with help and guidance from the @LINI scuba divers. The students’ alternative designs look fantastic at the bottom of the ocean and fish already seem to agree. Smaller fish have already been seen sheltering in and around the structures.
