The past two days we have been working with the Biorock Project on their solution to the dying coral reef habitats. The Biorock is a man-made structure that speeds up the growing process of coral polyps by sending electrical currents to the structure. This current sterilizes the structure and creates a safe and efficient environment for these polyps to grow. The organization, Biorock, has been placing these structures off the coast of Bali and they have asked us to help them the past couple of days. We have done everything from welding metal pieces to blessing this structure with a Hindu priest in the hopes that it will one day become a safe home for a coral reef. In the video below, we’re all holding our names before we weld them to the structure.
