Reefscapers & Seamarc, Maldives

Seamarc is a parent independent marine consultancy company that consults with tourism developers in the Maldives. They work in marine ornamentals, aquaculture, reef restoration (frames and tourist projects), baseline surveys, geotextile bags for reef erosion, etc. Subsidiary Reefscapers collaborates with high-end resorts like Four Seasons Maldives to install standard coral rebar frames, creating a sister program at the Four Seasons called MarineSavers. MarineSavers seems to have the most ongoing projects – thus speaks the power of capital. Reefscapers runs an indirect sponsorship program through their website.
