Wall Murals Promote Marine Conservation in Isla Mujeres

As underwater photographers, we know that art can have a tremendous impact in raising awareness for marine conservation. Sometimes that art comes in small packages like 4x6” prints. Other times, it is painted on a massive sea wall.

In Isla Mujeres, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is bringing the ocean to life on otherwise blank sea wall canvases. Internationally renowned street artists depict the native marine life to be found just off the shore such as whale sharks and manta rays in hopes of raising local awareness for conservation.

The project is now in its fourth phase and is led by PangeaSeed, a non-profit organization that combines the talent of artists and the beauty of the oceans to bolster conservation efforts.

“We are excited and honored to welcome back the Sea Walls community to Isla Mujeres for the fourth year in a row,” Cancun Convention and Visitor’s Beaureu CEO Jesus Almaguer told The Caribbean Journal.

“[Cancun] is proud to offer both visitors and locals alike the opportunity to enjoy these unique art pieces, which perfectly align with the island’s bohemian vibe and its current environmental conservation efforts,” he added.

Learn more about the project on the Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans website.
