Why Adopt a Reef?

15 Jun

Simply put, a reef is a rock, sandbar, or other feature lying beneath the surface of the water.  There are many different types oceanic reefs and they often host some of the most complex and fragile webs of biodiversity known to man.  They can be compared to a lush rain-forest; a haven that hosts thousands of species of animals and plant life, promotes reproduction and naturally replenishes sources of plant and animal based food.   Healthy reefs help make the ‘circle of life’ one size bigger.

With the current British Petroleum situation in the Gulf of Mexico, global coral reef decline rates, irresponsible fishing practices, and reckless development; the question may be better posed “Why not adopt a reef?”.  This 100% volunteer project seeks to increase amount of marine life and biodiversity in the Playa Hermosa Bay by building structures that attract fish, plants and invertebrates.  For only $150 you can adopt a reef for a period of 2 years and help us put build and develop more and more marine habitats.
