Reef Wrecks Series 1 4of5 Roatan

  • 6 years ago
The ocean floor is home to centuries’ worth of sunken vessels integrated into marine habitats. Explore extraordinary wrecks around the world and learn how these artificial structures have become a part of the ecosystem–and in some cases, a vital tool in reversing the effects of human impact.

Part 4: Roatan
The number of shipwrecks off the coast of Roatan suggest that these waters pose a threat to passing vessels – but the fact is most of these ships were deliberately sunk. The purpose? To create artificial reefs that attract a dazzling array of marine plants and creatures, in a bid to form a sustainable ecosystem.
