Coral Morphologic is a Miami-based scientific art endeavor founded by marine biologist Colin Foord and musician Jared McKay in 2007. Together they seek to build empathy and awareness between humans and corals through a diversity of public projects that elevate corals into pop culture as the neon icons of 21st century Miami. Coral Morphologic's current objective is to develop a coral nursery along South Pointe Park in Miami Beach in partnership with local schools. This location presents a unique opportunity to grow, study, and transplant corals in a publicly accessible location. Water probes will record important scientific data useful to students and scientists alike, such as sea level rise, acidification, and pollution. An underwater webcam will live-stream the tropical fish and marine life via the internet to reveal to the world unique and beautiful nature of Miami's urban coral reef ecosystem.
