BUILDING, GROWING & SOLIDIFYING
THE REEFS OF AUSTRALIA
THE REEFS OF AUSTRALIA
Nurtured.Co invites you to join us in rebuilding the Australia's coral reefs.
By sponsoring a reef segment that will be planted directly into degraded reefs,
you can help benefit the environment and the locals that get to enjoy them.
You'll also receive a Nurtured.Co digital artwork to thank you for your contribution.
SPONSOR A REEF BUILD
The reef that you are sponsoring has the ability to live on for generations, providing habitats for a host of fish, marine organisms and coral.
Your payment goes directly towards funding our research into providing the environment with the most resilient and beneficial reef possible.
In exchange for your payment, we provide you with a Nurtured.Co digital artwork to thank you for your contribution.
WE BUILD THE REEF
Nurtured Reefs are primarily made from rebar steel sourced and upcycled from local construction sites. This reduces our impact on the environment with the use of leftover or recycled materials.
All material used in the design of our reefs is environmentally friendly and has zero risk of harming inhabitants of surrounding ecosystems.
WE NURTURE THE REEF
Over time, the Nurtured structures will continue to grow and develop into a vibrant reef. Currently, our structures are growing at rates of approximately 5cm per year. While this may not sound like much, this growth is effectively 10x the original diameter of the initial rebar steel implemented.
The primary substance depositing and growing on the structure is called calcium carbonate. This is the same material that makes up the foundation of the vast majority of natural reefs around the world.
Christian From Rod Armour
"I have loved the reef from a young age, and the more often I go back to visit certain parts, the worse it gets. I was excited to buy a full reef and make a tangible difference for the GBR. This reef I bought will live on for centuries".
Benji from Couture Realty
'I see it in the news all the time about how the reef is dying, I wanted to do something about it, I came across Nurtured.Co and bought a reef that is now named after my company'
Terry Grey Nomad
'Over my liftetime a lot has changed especially the health of the reef. When I learnt about Nurtured.Co and the work they are doing, their vision and what they have already done, it is incredibly inspiring and I want to support it 100%'
Nurtured.Co reefs continually grows calcium carbonate and can repair itself over time. It becomes more durable and resilient as the years progress. Our reefs survive through tough conditions where natural reefs may decline.
The technology can potentially be implemented anywhere and could be used to save reefs around the globe. It is very cost efficient compared to other artificial reef projects.
Coral will grow far faster when attached to the Nurtured structure and depending on the species it can grow up to 10x faster.
All Nurtured reefs are built using spare/scrap metal from construction sites that we repurpose.
