Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

In the words of National Geographic explorer-in-residence Enric Sala: "The ocean is like a checking account where everybody withdraws but nobody makes a deposit.”

The Focus


Take Action

If you do eat seafood (marine life), you can be a responsible consumer by:

  • Choosing to eat species that are lower on the foodchain. Think sardines over tuna.
  • Refer to consumer guides such as Seafood Watch and only eat species that are considered sustainable.
  • Look out for catch harvested using non-commercial, more sustainable fishing methods such as spearfishing and pole-and-line.
