Students are placing reef balls in groups around the coast of The Island School, in an effort to prevent erosion of the soil around the coast. There is lots of water moving back and forth across the peninsula of The Island School, and waves and wind also tend to carry away sediment. Over time (and especially during storms) The Island School is losing land out to sea. So reef balls might not just be useful for attracting fish; they might also slow the rate of soil loss.
