Coral Gardeners

In April 2022 the Coral Gardeners, a reef restoration team from Mo’orea, French Polynesia, asked me to develop a solar-powered camera system for off-grid reef health monitoring. Within two weeks, we went from design to ocean-proof deployment, sending a livestream from the reef over 4 km WiFi connection back to shore to feed our ReefOS AI algorithm with data to classify fish and evaluate the reef health.

The video below shows the work we’ve achieved during my 2 weeks stay at the headquarter of Coral Gardeners – beautifully filmed and edited by amazing Dustyn Alt.
