REEF BUILDING WORKSHOP - LIVING SHORELINES: Green Engineering Methods for Coral Reef Rehabilitation
10 - 20 Sep 2021
Registration deadline: 15th of July 2021
We, rrreefs are excited to announce our first-ever international reef-building workshop in partnership with Corales de Paz, taking place this September in San Andrés, Colombia.
This goes out to everyone interested in joining us in building the first pilot reef with rrreefs’ easy-to-handle 3D-printed stackable brick system. It is a 10-day intensive full-time 100 hours hands-on, and in-water practical workshop (incl. 14 SCUBA dives). The workshop touches on coral ecology, newest approaches to coral restoration and ecosystem rehabilitation, appropriate design, logistics, and evaluation of a restoration project. We will showcase the feasibility of construction and customization, with a subsequent multi-year monitoring program. This new approach of passive, structure-based reef regeneration will be combined with proven active reef restoration approaches such as coral fragmentation, gardening, and transplantation techniques perfected by Corales de Paz.
The program will be divided into a series of classroom lessons and field activities. Lessons will be held in English. All in-water field activities will be carried out with SCUBA diving equipment.
