Conrad Bora Bora Nui

Conrad Bora Bora Nui has created a groundbreaking technology programme that regenerates the coral reefs surrounding the resort.

It has developed 17 underwater structures that aim to restore the coral using a ‘Biorock’ technique, which passes a low voltage electric current into the water – one of the best ways to regenerate coral reefs.

The coral that they regenerate will feed plankton, which feeds the fish and also generates oxygen to feed into the air we breathe. So this initiative can regenerate an entire ecosystem!
