Over the past three years, street artists across the globe have taken up their brushes, prepped their spray cans, and united for one common mission. To Save Our Seas.
From endangered species and coral decline to ocean plastics and loss of global biodiversity, these artists have depicted a myriad of environmental issues for all the world to see. Last year, I covered their decent upon the tiny Mexican island of Isla Mujeres under the conservation flagship PangeaSeed.
“PangeaSeed is an international organization who collaborates with members of the art, science, and environmental activist communities. They are dedicated to raising public awareness and education surrounding the conservation and preservation of sharks and other marine species in peril.”
In 2014, they created over 15 murals on Isla Mujeres alone that have inspired the community and thousands of tourists that flock to this summertime haven.
Recently, the extraordinary team at PangeaSeed, rallied the troops yet again, this time in Cozumel, Mexico. With over thirty supported artists, PangeaSeed nearly tripled this years mural count. An entire island brimming with beautiful ocean artwork. A bold statement to the current status and peril of our global oceans.
Below is just a small glimpse of the larger festival. If you would like to learn more about PangeaSeed or how to support this amazing conservation organization please visit: www.PangeaSeed.org
