Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are often called the rain forests of the sea. They are one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world and provide many key ecosystem services, including food, coastal protection, and tourism revenue. Elemental Solutions specializes in coral reef monitoring, protection and restoration.

Living shoreline

ES Caribbean teamed up with the Reef Ball Foundation to offer their new products - the Eco-Rap modules protecting the shoreline from wave energy. These living shoreline are an absolute necessity to protect shorelines from erosion. All the modules are custom made to ensure the highest level of protection and efficiency.

Mangrove restoration

Mangrove restoration is an essential step in the campaign to protect and rehabilitate near-shore tropical habitats. We work with a wide range of afforestation techniques, from direct planting to leading edge technology like the mangrove planters from Mangrove Solutions, which specially engineered for challenging environments, where classical planting methods fail.

Environmental Monitoring

Elemental Solutions excels in all phases of monitoring for the marine environment, from baseline assessment, gap analysis and complex long-term monitoring studies. We can help you design a monitoring plan, train your staff in proper monitoring technique and tools, or even conduct monitoring for your organization, depending on your specific needs.

Marine Protected Areas

MPAs are important tools for conserving natural and cultural marine resources as part of an ecosystem approach to management. ES caribbean provides services and support to improve understanding of specific local conditions, in order to facilitate the best MPA design possible. Our staff will collect crucial information, from initial environmental survey to complex long-term monitoring and the coordination of different stakeholders.
