THE CRYSTAL FLOOR

Corals are dying at a rate never seen before, and this is primarily due to climate change. Monitoring coral reefs using low-cost technology while creating a link between humans and corals is our strategy to change the situation.

WHERE ?

Costa Rica

The metal sphere

For years it has been thought that this is a precolombinan sphere, looking at the welding joints it is obvious that is not the case.

The hemisphere

In the past, this colony probably looked like a hemisphere. Today, maybe due to currents and bleaching events also storms, or an “El Niño” Phenomenom, we only can see half of it.

Porites And Propella

This Porites has some scars showing that a boat could have sailed over it.

Porites Bleached

Bleaching is a reaction of the coral colony against an external factor that is stressing the animal, the most common factor is the water temperature that is increasing due to climate change.

Porites Healthy

This is good example of some coral colonies of Porites lobata that you can still find today around the stunning Caño Island.

The Pavona Wall

Sometimes coral reef grows in the most incredible ways and patterns, this Pavona decided to grow in a vertical wall creating this stunning structure.

Deyanira

This small beauty shows how aesthetics and nature work together, a small healthy coral colony surrounded by an area of dead coral reef.
