Floating Island Bird Refuge

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds recommends the use of floating islands to increase breeding success and provide year round bird habitat.  The use of bird habitat islands shows a commitment to wildlife protection, while offering an ideal educational opportunity and community focal point.  We use long life marine grade materials, offering an easy to install modular system available in many shapes and sizes.  Islands are designed with planted areas for a natural waterscape aesthetic.

  • Buoyancy level can be engineered to carry driftwood, trees or rock features.
  • Islands can be installed with gravel, reeds and plants for specific nesting requirements.
  • Marine-engineered production for long-term durability.  Thermo-fused tough floats, UV resistance (no Styrofoam or PVC used).
  • Maintenance free, year round haven from ground predators to increase breeding success rates.
  • Extended root structures beneath islands attract biofilm thus improving water quality.

Fish Sanctuary & Refuge

Our fish refuge islands provide a natural sanctuary for fish.  The planted structure allows fish to seek shelter and habitat to feed amongst the plant roots.  An optional subsurface screen mesh can be added for underwater protection of young fish.

  • The extended root structure beneath the water provides a biological matrix which supports good water quality and provides food for fish.
  • Protected HDPE mesh can be attached to protect spawning fish from otter, mink & predatory fish.
  • Thermo-fused tough floats are durable and UV resistant.
  • No styrofoam or PVC materials are used in the fabrication of our island components.
