Jason deCaires Taylor is an artist with a very unique style and mission—he creates sculptures that are intended to be placed underwater to help foster the growth of coral reefs which benefit the ecosystem. In early 2017, the final phase of his monumental sculptural project known as ‘Museo Atlantico’ was completed and inaugurated by Pedro San Gines who is the president of the island of Lanzarote, Spain.
As with most scenarios, education is the key to helping coral reefs. Jason hopes that his art will engage more people and bring attention to the issues that the oceans currently face. He has a children’s book written about his artistic—and conservationist—endeavors. After all, the more people who aim to seek solutions to the problem, the better the chances are that the coral reefs will be protected and ultimately thrive.
