Philippine Nature Foundation Inc. is actively participating in artificial reef programs utilizing Reef Balls, allowing individuals and groups the opportunity to sponsor either an ongoing or a new artificial reef development project on any shoreline or reef system in the Philippines.
A reef ball is a designed artificial reef used to restore ailing coral reefs and to create new fishing and scuba diving sites. Reef balls are used for beach protection, freshwater, mitigation, and many other uses too.
Reef Balls are the only artificial reef that can be floated and towed behind any size boat! Reef Balls are made of special, marine friendly, concrete and are designed to mimic natural reef systems; they are used around the world to create habitats for fish and other marine and freshwater species. Over 500,000 Reef Balls have been deployed in over 3,400 projects worldwide. Reef Balls are made in many sizes to best match the natural reef type which is being mimicked.
Reef Balls are the most widely used artificial reef system in the world due to numerous specially designed features that make them ideally suited to create aquatic habitats.
