A project supported through Corporate Social Responsibility, Philanthropy and Individual Donations.
Reef Builders International
Reef Builders International is authorized to begin construction of the Imagination/Celebration Reef Project in the waters offshore of Key Biscayne, Florida. The authorization to build was granted in 2021 and conditioned on our fulfillment of the terms of the Army Corps of Engineers permit given to the Department of Environmental Resources Management of Miami Dade, Florida. Reef Builders has operated under the same conditions in the past, building The Atlantis Reef, now known as Neptune Reef.
This Artificial Reef construction project requires the movement of over twenty thousand tons of Ancient Florida Limestone Coral Rock, 3D printed marine habitats, and twelve thousand lineal feet of Marine piling three miles offshore of Key Biscayne, Florida. These materials are highly conducive to the settlement and creation of marine life on an estimated five hundred thousand square feet of surface area for natural attachment and grafting of hard corals.
We are excited to be collaborating with Student Marine Biologists and Professors to do our part to save coral reefs from the harmful effects of climate change. In addition, we are preparing to use laboratory-produced assisted evolution resilient corals that can withstand increases in ocean temperatures and acidification.
This Reef sends an iconic message to the world. The words “Protect The Oceans” and “Save Our Reefs” will cover over 10.7 acres of the ocean floor. Our work and this creation will indeed become the most visited dive site in the State of Florida, adding millions of tourism dollars and hundreds of new jobs to Florida’s economy.
Our goal is to build the Imagination/Celebration Reef and assist the rising talent in Marine Biology classrooms at colleges and universities, to study reef restoration and ways to mitigate the harmful effects of rising temperatures and acidification.
