Research in Action
This is an example of our first small scale prototype that to date has grown 2-4 times in diameter, providing the ideal conditions for coral settlement.
Why We Started
Throughout our lifetime, we have slowly seen the demise of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). Through the use of Nurtured.Co technology, we aim to offer a proactive and scalable solution to save and rebuild the GBR. We predict that we can build a large number of artificial reefs stretching along the entire GBR for a fraction of what the government has spent on foundations, grants and other initiatives to save the reef. In addition to this we want to share the majestic nature of the reef to other suitable parts of Queensland, by building artificial reefs right along the coastline.
We want to expand on the artificial reefs within Moreton Bay, build reefs out the front of seaside residences and hotels and reimagine what marine infrastructure projects look like. There are numerous benefits involved in building artificial reefs from an environmental and economic standpoint. The GBR is a natural asset and jobs multiplier in Queensland; we should be protecting it, rebuilding it and insuring it.
We want to give everyone the chance to support proactive research and begin rebuilding the reef. Get involved by sharing Nurtured.Co efforts around and begin your proactive support today.
