Coral reefs are some of the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth, known as the “rainforests of the sea”. They support more species per unit area than any other marine environment, including about 4,000 species of fish, 800 species of hard coral and hundreds of other life forms. The aqua culture also accounts for billions of dollars globally in pharmaceutical materials. Threats to coral reefs are something to be taken seriously, and that’s what Reef Life Restoration is working to address.

Reef Life Restoration is providing nanotechnologies to protect and regrow coral reefs. Their biocompatible coral cell surface textures and mineral formulations mimic the complex structure and composition of natural coral reefs. These innovations have been developed over the past 12 years using nano-materials research for this critical global problem.

Reef forests and farms are cast per piece to cover acres, or small coral communities, customized for particular site or substance growth. Melody Brenna, CEO and co-founder of Reef Life Restoration, says this science is extremely adaptable, so if a client needs to grow algae for medicines, they can embed nano-scale particles for that client. They provide site and problem specific consultation and testing and then their team of engineers create appropriate design, cost valuations and implementation strategies. These farms are being used around the world.
