Creating a Marine Sanctuary for Corals to THRIVE
As part of the Ocean Connection Coral Reef Program, the FCOLC is working with the Marine Foundation to bring together marine science and art to develop innovative, underwater sculpture installations near the coastal region of Curaçao. The partnership will form a marine garden sanctuary made up of symbolic “ocean sentinels” that will create a thriving underwater environment of living art. This program will provide a sustainable alternative to destructive fishing and marine ecosystem decline by supporting local communities and help eco-tourism flourish.
