Cole Bay, SINT MAARTEN —On 6th November 2018, GLISPA Friend REEF LIFE announced the installment of IntelliReefs: "Smart Substrates for Super Corals" at three sites in St. Maarten in a continuing effort to restore marine biodiversity habitats devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The three sites include the Bridge, the Manowar Shoal Marine Protected Area and just off the landing of the Pelican Peak Zipline in Point Blanche, currently under construction by Sea to Sky Ventures.
Scientists, filmmakers, photographers, creatives, and leaders from the ecotourism industry assisted the Sint Maarten Nature Foundation with its mission to restore the island’s coral reefs installing IntelliReefs, to foster the growth and development of coral offspring able to survive extreme weather and changes in water chemistry.
This initiative is part of the Plant a Million Coral campaign that will see one million corals
planted throughout the Caribbean Basin by 2025.
