1000 Mermaid Reef Dive

Dive Sites BMorin COMMENTS 19 Oct, 2019

Mermaids have long been a symbol of humans’ connection to the Ocean, and this artificial reef is being created by body casting real people in the form of mermaids on ocean friendly artistically crafted reef modules that will allow their likeness to live forever on the sea floor.

What began as a simple idea of turning the models into mermaids has now grown into a long term project that will create 1,000 body sculptures made-up of a sustainable concrete which allows infant coral to adhere to it and restore Florida’s living coral reef population. The 1000 Mermaids Artificial Reef Project & Gallery of 1000 Mermaids is a monumental public EcoArt project in the form of an artificial reef installation that will also serve as an underwater eco-friendly destination for tourism & research. Its mission is to enhance marine habitats and expand fishery populations while providing enhanced creative, economic and educational opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of residents, students and visitors alike.
