New turtle reefs on the reef crest

The turtle and lobster reefs add to the range of reefs that TRACC builds to repair damaged reef evironments.
More info on reef construction here.

These CORFU (coral reef foundation units) are larger and stronger than the ribbon reef bottle reefs or the bottle clusters and are designed to with stand the waves in the shallowest part of the reef.  These reefs serve the same function as reef balls but they are much more suitable for community reef projects being both lighter and cheaper.  TRACC makes 2 types of CORFU reefs, Lobster reefs and turtle reefs
