Destruction of Coral Reefs • Coral reefs are continuing to be destroyed. • As providing habitation for a quarter of all marine species and protection of coastlines from erosion and storm damage, they are vital to people and ecosystems.
Shock Reefs Back to Life • Unfortunately conservation efforts have done little to help, but in 2000 a technique using low voltage electricity to grow limestone on metal cages gave corals new energy and stronger structures to grow on.
Biorock • Nicknamed “Biorock,” this process speeds up the growth of coral and increases its resistance to stress. • Learn more about this technique on the Biorockwebsite!
Reach for the Sky • Urban sprawl has various negative effects on the environment, in particular the killing of trees. • Recently a creative solution was created: planting upward.
BoscoVerticale • Construction is currently taking place in Milan where a two-building apartment complex will double as the world’s first vertical forest. • This complex, known as BoscoVerticale, will contribute to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity.
BoscoVerticale • Each unit will consist of humidity creating and CO2-filtering plants. • These plants will also aid in absorbing dust particles, producing oxygen, protecting the public from radiation, and saving energy.
BoscoVerticale • They will receive their nourishment from greywater (filtered, recycled water deriving from laundry, dishwashing, and bathing) and the buildings themselves will derive most of their power from the sun. • Read more about BoscoVerticalehere.
