Underwater Museum, second phase

The Cancun Underwater Museum is a project created to help conserve the area’s natural reefs. After a $350,000 investment, Phase 1 of the project was launched in November of last year, when three sculptures by artist and sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor were submerged into the waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
Currently, preparations are underway for Phase 2, which is expected to place 400 sculptures in the National Marine Park. The sculptures will be embedded on the surface of the sand at different depths to become a part of the National Marine Park, which is officially recognized as the world’s largest underwater museum. These sculptures will be placed in the bottom of the sea, at different depths, in order to create an artificial natural habitat. Coral is already blooming in the sunken sculptures.
