Completing the Circle of Life - Living Reef Memorial Helping to Preserve Memories of Loved Ones Forever With Unique Artificial Reef Memorials That Flourish

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2015) - Living Reef Memorial ( is helping families do something amazing to commemorate and honor their recently departed loved ones: lay them to rest in an artificial ocean reef that ultimately flourishes with life, thus helping to preserve the delicate ecosystem and complete the circle of life.

The San Diego based company is one of only a handful that develops and manufactures artificial reefs. The artificial reefs are the backbone of a marine habitat restoration project that is being funded by marketing the reefs as an ecological alternative to a traditional burial.

Formed in 2002, Living Reef Memorial now has a new location that is positioned directly along the San Diego and Mexico border, in an ideal proximity to a number of ongoing artificial reef projects that are being actively pursued. 

"Living Reef Memorial began as a way to fund a marine habitat restoration project in overfished waters," explains Brody Williams, a representative for the entity. "It is also being used as a revenue-generating tool for our sister company, Sea Turtle Rescue ( Our mission is to deploy as many artificial reefs as possible, so our overfished coastal waters can restore themselves to the bounty we once enjoyed, while helping to preserve the delicate balance that Mother Nature intends." 

Living Reef Memorial brings an entirely new and wonderful burial option to the table for those who are in after-life planning. Never before has there been a burial choice that is completely permanent, as ecologically beneficial, or as socially accepted; one that offers innately civic and ecological benefits to communities.

"This is the largest artificial reef project ever attempted, with 100,000 reefs to be deployed in the near future," Williams says. "The money generated from the sale of the reefs is being used help save endangered sea turtles all across the globe." 

Living Reef Memorial offers a variety of reef packages and options for those who are in after-life planning. For more information, they can be reached toll-free at: (800) 569-REEF (7333). Or they can be found online at:

"When considering your after-life planning, a Living Reef Memorial is an ecological alterative that eternally gives back to the cherished loved ones we leave behind," Williams adds.


Living Reef Memorial provides scientifically engineered, artificial marine habitats that mimic the habitat of hundreds of species of marine life. Ashes of the departed are lovingly preserved within the Living Reef Memorial, transported out to sea by sailboat, and installed to the sea floor by a team of reef specialists. After a short time, a beautiful and natural transformation occurs and the reef begins to bloom with a bounty of life. The life that is created from the ashes of the departed is in perfect harmony with the circle of life, and leaves a positive footprint that will forever live on.
