Ocean Trashed Used To Educate

by | May 15, 2012 | Conservation, Funny | 0 comments

Oregon-based artist and educator Angela Haseltine Pozzi has taken a novel approach by creating an exhibit called “Washed Ashore: Plastics, Sea Life & Art” to educate people about the dangers marine debris poses to wildlife.

While this 10-foot-high sculpture standing at the entrance to the Chula Vista Nature Center may just look like a big, pretty, fish from a distance it is really made up of, well… trash. This sculpture, fondly called “Henry” is made from plastic pieces, aluminum cans, dish soap bottles, lids, buoys, plastic toys and recycled rebar. Look closer and you can even see flip-flops.

The exhibit is currently on display at the Chula Vista Nature Center in California.

    Tal got back into the hobby in 2006 after a long break. After hearing Dr. Frank Marini speak at the Midwest Marine Conference in 2008 he was hooked on fish breeding . Since then he has created his own website with his personal captive breeding information and helped create the Marine Breeding Initiative. It is Tal's hope to promote captive breeding as much as possible by speaking and writing about the topic.
