Shipwreck Park is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the creation of an underwater park system establishing artificial reefs, utilizing public art to raise awareness of the need to preserve and conserve our natural coral reef system.
Art: Creation of unique, transformative and living public art to raise awareness and inspire emotional connections.
Conservation: Deploy host structures that facilitate the natural colonization of marine habitats to protect and conserve our natural marine ecosystems.
Education: To create public awareness about the plight of the marine environment by inspiring support of conservation efforts off our shores.
“In the last 30 years, over 50% of the world’s coral reefs have died”-NOAA

The purpose of Shipwreck Park Pompano is to develop and protect our coral reefs. Our events seek to engage and inform the public through art and
education of the importance of the reefs and ways they can become involved.
