Iʼve always tried to turn unexpected or unfortunate situations into something positive. Rather than struggle to remove the shell of the Concordia, I would like to see the ship stay where it is, and be repurposed into a nature preserve. Empty subway cars are often used to offer shelter and rebuild populations of sea life. This ship could offer the same benefit to marine life in addition to providing a destination for adventurous divers. Above the waterline, they could introduce indigenous plants and other native species of bird and small animal to create a new habitat.
