Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

Malabar Groupers can grow up to 2.3 meters, and juvenile golden Trevally often hang around big animals like these for protection. A visual example of the many ways how different species interact and need each other. A delicate balance where every species has its place and importance. The Malabar Grouper is listed as near threatened. Groupers have a late reproduction age and are facing threats of fishing with animals being caught before they can reproduce.
