A Pangea Seed pioneering project Â in co-production with 1xRun and Residencia Gorila.
The mission of Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans â€“ Mexico Expedition is simple: our goal is to raise awareness for the conservation of the ocean and greatly needed protection for the whale sharks and manta rays off the Yucatan peninsula, by means of art and creativity.
The goal of the expedition is to offer these artists the opportunity to swim with and study endangered whale sharks and oceanic manta rays off the coast of the island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico from July 20-28, 2014. Inspired by their interactions with these majestic giants in the wild, the artists created a series of large-scale public murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of these animals and the oceans. The murals highlight the benefits of ecotourism and long-term sustainability of natural resources.
Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is a new approach to ocean conservation, marrying art and activism – or as we like to call it “ARTivism”.
