Cancun Underwater Museum
Cancun Underwater Museum MUSA is devoted to the Art of Conservation. This museum has a total of 500 sculptures with three different galleries submerged between three and six meters underwater. The underwater museum is to benefit the protection of the coral reefs. Artificial reefs are usually created by sunken ships and other objects that have fallen to the bottom of the ocean floor. The statues made out of material that enables corals to grow and collect. As each statue was made with PH-neutral cement, coral, seaweed, and algae are able to grow and develop better than on an old ship. Stable structures with a stable base have been known to be the perfect surface for artificial reefs to form. The statues also feature holes in them, which allow marine wildlife to colonize and feed off the coral. Coral reefs will increase, but so will marine life.
