The mission at Memorial Reefs International is rehabilitation and protection of the worlds ocean ecosystems through the development and use of ecologically sound artificial reef technology. The concrete used for the Memorial Reef has a pH balance matching the ocean, and the structure contains no rebar. This means a Memorial Reef will last hundreds of years, serving as a home for substantial marine life.

Memorial Reefs International provides individuals a unique final resting place that creates and perpetuates marine reef ecosystems, essential to facilitating fish biomass restoration and coral regeneration. Memorial Reefs International’s Undersea Memorial Gardens are located in areas where natural habitats have been weakened by climate change and human activity.
