Cocoa Beach 1.0

Commission

2020

Rhizolith Island as a Living Shoreline for Cocoa Beach Florida. Here, we are implementing the islands along one of the canals adjacent to McNabb Park. The city needs a floating living shoreline to help bring back Mangroves and oysters. We are working to accomplish both!

We have started to construct some prototypes and are testing which type of concrete the oysters like best! Come back and see us install some of the islands in the coming months!
