Saving a community

Yos Amertha invited Wolf and Tom to Pemuteran in the hope that they could help save the reefs. They started their first experiment in June 2000. The first step was to build metal structures, which would form the foundation of the artificial reefs. This was done with construction steel bars, also known as re-bar, roughly one to one and a half centimetres in diameter, which was bent into different shapes and welded together.

The advantage of using re-bar is that it is not very expensive, you can buy it pretty much anywhere and it is easy to weld together. This meant that these structures could be built anywhere in the world by people with basic knowledge of welding. They tried a few different designs and, once the first structures were built, they were carried out onto the beach, floating buoys were attached and divers and snorkellers pulled them out into the ocean. Once they reached the area where they were to be sunk, the buoys were pulled loose and they lowered the structures onto the sandy bottom in depths between three to six metres.
