What’s in this tour?

a. Biorock Introduction

Biorock® Technology is a tried and tested cost effective method for coral restoration and preservation. In this course, each participant will understand the full cycle and complete process of restoring coral reefs using the Biorock® Technology. This one day course shall be conducted by the co-creator of the technology itself, Thomas Goreau, and Biorock Indonesia's experts.

b. Biorock Tour

Gangga Island is the initial shore protection project in Indonesia. Experiencing abrasion due to the rising of sea level and big waves, the technology was applied to help Gangga Island Resort and Spa restoring their shore line. Biorock® provides the ideal breakwater material because it grows stronger with age and repairs itself if damaged by heavy waves. This tour will introduce how the technology works and its maintenance process, while sightseeing and exploring the beauty of Gangga Island.
