TrashTara is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
Amphitrite speaks to the public about coral conservation, restoration, and using art, science and technology to create electrified artistic artificial reef structures that create the conditions for coral reefs to flourish. Amphitrite educates children and adults on the importance of ocean and coral health.
Wild corals in vicinity of Zoe. When broken by divers, storms, and disease, we transplant the fragments to Zoe.
Participants help with coral restoration at Zoe - A Living Sea Sculpture via hands on activities and presentations, including talks about coral biology given by the National Marine Park, visiting the turtle hatcheries and recycling/waste centers, discussing and learning about our impact and the major threats facing corals and efforts to mitigate the ongoing damage.
Students learn to dive and help with restoration first hand and do a beach clean up to experience the real life impact of garbage along the coastlines.
To receive their 100 hours of University Credit, they create individual videos to raise awareness and promote changes we can make towards zero waste and a healthy ocean where coral reefs can flourish.
