Artistic Murals

Make a mural in a popular public place in honor of the ocean. Get together a group of local artists or enthusiastic friends to paint a public wall. The mural could feature a few easy actions people could take to protect the ocean or a beautiful ocean scene. Instead of paint, also consider using other materials like glass for mosaics, even pieces of plastic!

Human Formations

Organize a piece of temporary art! Get a group of volunteers and interested beachgoers to make large human formations in the shape of ocean creatures, and phrases such as “Protect Our World Ocean.” Invite the local media to photograph the formations or take photographs yourself and submit them to blogs and newspapers along with a story about World Oceans Day and ocean conservation.
