Coral reefs are fragile eco systems and affected by natural desasters as well as mankinds impact.

The Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park is one of the most famous reef reviatlization projects and the first of its kind in the world using an art exhibition to invite nature to inhabit. Established in 2006, the underwater sculpture park provides an artificial reef structure from environmental safe material on which new marine life can grow; while at the same time releasing pressure of the natural habitat. Proven its intended purpose over the past 5 years, the rejuvenating project is now fully underway. Aquanauts is proud sponsor of one of the new circle of children figurines, again sculpted by artist Jason de Caire -Taylor, the creator of underwater art exhibitions. The new circle of children will be placed at the site of former "Grace Reef", from where the sculptures were ,oved to a new location.

The new circles location is shallower and more protected, inproving the visiting snorkelers experience of the art work. It is also an ideal spot for a divers safety stop with its depth of 5m/15 feet.

To prepare the location for the new circle, the sculptures of "Grace Reef" needed to be moved to a new place. With the help of several local dive masters, two large lift bags this task was finished within one Satruday afternoon. Great fun it has been too!
