Coral Papilio

Coral Papilio is a floating modular system. It filters sunlight to promote coral’s growth in algae-occupied shallow coastal sea and attracts local touristic opportunities to create a resilient ecosystem which can assist coral conservation works, raise people’s awareness and benefit other social and educational values.
