Sea seed is a corral nursery/education center whose goal is to raise awareness about the delicate coral reefs around Okinawa and to restore them to their previous glory by raising "seedlings" and then seeding the ocean with them.

From what I could piece together from the information boards, the reefs around Okinawa used to be 90-100% live coral as recently as the early 1970s but through pollution and building, most reefs are now less than 10% live coral.
The kids got a kick out of feeding seaweed to the fish.

And the whole place was definitely set in a beautiful place, right on the beach and made to look like coral.

After we toured the place we walked out the above jetty and had a snack. Not a bad place to spend and hour or two!
