The staff at My Living Reef respectfully transforms ashes into an artificial reef. This living reef then becomes part of a mass of life and hope for the future of our planet. A Living Reef increases biodiversity, reduces species extinction rates, and is a gift that is full of the treasures and adventures of life itself. Not long after the reef is placed into the sea, life begins to move in and thrive. This scientifically designed marine friendly compound is then placed into a reef mold. When the compound cures, the mold is then removed, and what you have is a structure that is specifically designed to mimic the habitat of marine species that have been impacted by humans. The reef has holes that run through the entire reef with voids within the walls of the structure so that the targeted marine species has a place to call home.
The reef molds are made from recycled materials and the reef itself is made from environmentally friendly materials. Once the reef has had time to cure the reef is then loaded onto a non polluting sailboat and taken to its designated area for deployment. This area is located off the southern coast of San Diego called the Los Coronados Islands. Once on site the reef is lowered into its permeated resting place where it will begin serving our oceans and humanity. Because the reef has no economic motivation to remove or destroy it, it will never be harmed. Your loved one will remain in their resting place forever, unlike a cemetery.
If you’re looking for an ecological beneficial alternative to traditional memorials then My Living Reef may be an option for you. They are solely dedicated to the preservation of endangered habitat and offer this service to the public in an effort to restore ailing fish stocks in Southern California and Northern Baja waters.
