Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

My mural addresses coastal development and hopefully reminds people that our actions have a direct impact on the environment. What we do here on land has effects on our oceans. We're all connected and our lives on land depend heavily on the seas. So, c'mon, let's take care of it.

The Focus

Coastal development

Take Action

While it’s hard for an individual to control human population growth and the decisions of landowners and construction companies, you can take small steps to support the restoration and protection of coastal habitats by:

  • Supporting the creation of nature reserves and Marine Protected Areas, where development is limited and fishing is prohibited.
  • Being a conscious consumer. Buy organic produce grown without pesticides, fertilizers, and other toxic chemicals.
  • Supporting legislation that bans the dumping of sewage and chemicals into the oceans.
  • Opposing new developments that disregard the health of coastal ecosystems and are poorly planned.
