Contribution to the Seascape charity – care for our oceans

  • To support a local environmental charity, Live Ocean Foundation recently, Cosentino NZ commissioned a custom-made coffee table to be designed and made by New Era Tiling.
  • The finished product was auctioned for $6,000 and the proceeds went towards the charity’s Seascape project, a pioneering photogrammetry innovation, which allows scientists to create high-res, 3D models and landscape-scale maps of the seafloor.
  • This project is trialling in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf and aims to gather more accurate science that helps us to understand the effects of climate change on the oceans.
