CAUSE DESCRIPTION

Using Biorock technology this project is restoring the destroyed reef around Gili Islands and Lombok, Indonesia. This technology is enhancing coral growth, fish populations and protecting beaches from erosion. There are now 145 Biorock structures installed and working for the benefit of the reef systems around the Gili Islands, there is need of many more. Developing marine turbines is integral to power the Biorock reefs with blue renewable and sustainable energy, harnessing the ocean and marine currents.

CAUSE SUMMARY

Biorock technology is used to create artificial coral reef systems by installing a steel structure and attaching corals that are still living, but are not rooted to substrate otherwise. A low voltage current is then passed through the structure to create a stable substrate surface for the coral fragments to cement themselves to. This process speeds up the restoration of the reef and this form of reef has been proven to be more resilient.
