Children swim and play in "new harbor" which is a tetrapod sea wall that surrounds the entire island of Malé, Maldives on March 10, 2009. Following the 1991 tsunami, which flooded much of the island, the Japanese government built the sea wall, at a cost of approximately $60 million, using concrete blocks with four legs known as tetrapods. The blocks can be stacked so that the legs inter-lock, thus providing a movable structure that protects the shoreline, yet allows water to pass through.
