The Cancun Underwater Museum is a project created to help conserve the area’s natural reefs. Sculptures by artist and sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor were submerged into the waters of the Mexican Caribbean and there are now 400 sculptures in the National Marine Park in Isla Mujeres.  These sculptures are placed in the bottom of the sea, at different depths, in order to create an artificial natural habitat and coral is already blooming in the sunken sculptures.  The Cancun Underwater Museum is now recognized as the world’s largest underwater museum.
