Description

With the ever increasing amount of marine construction around the world encroaching on shorelines and destroying natural habitats, Living Seawalls have come up with an innovative solution: combining engineering with ecological concerns, they have created specially designed tiles which are attached to sea walls to create habitats for marine life to attach to. As of October 2021 they have installations in Australia, Singapore, Gibraltar and Wales. Living Seawalls is a program of the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and collaborates with Reef Design Lab. Finalist in the Revive our Oceans category of the 2021 Earthshot award.
