There's nothing better than an innovation that helps the plane and adventure junkies alike. TreeHugger talks about how ASR Limited, a company that recreates coral reef ecosystems, has created a new reef system that prevents erosion and forms killer waves. Their current, almost-complete reef is based near the English town of Bournemouth, and should improve the aquatic ecosystem while establishing the area as a destination for surfers and snorkelers.
