The earth is going through many challenges to maintain biodiversity and the growing human population is amplifying planetary concerns related to preserving diverse species. Seas have been overfished, coral reefs are almost completely gone, and wildlife does not stand a chance against the growing human population.
The health of all living things is in the biodiversity of its inhabitants.
This awareness and engagement project starts as a mega art display to support fundraising for the preservation and renewal of biodiversity around the world. It begins in Florida on many a one-hundred plus foot walls, in art districts and high traffic areas to entertain and depict many focus areas starting with:
Artificial Reefs - nurturing the seas and restoring fish populations
Bird Sanctuaries -creating habitats that evolve and protect nature
Wildlife Corridors - eliminating barriers which support healthy diversity
Plants and Trees - preserving plants, medicines, species and ecosystems
RELATED PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE:
Global Warming and Renewable Energy - impactful solutions
Global Pollution Awareness (what"s your gpa?) - Air, Land and Sea
Support for local animal shelters and extinction prevention habitats
Why paint mega walls for awareness and fundraising?
As an initial fundraiser, this project sets the stage for awareness and related project funding. Wall art dimensions are typically over 100 feet long by 20 feet high with variances by locale. The proposed scene will be designed by a collaboration of artists with an elaborate nature scene which highlights biodiversity concerns, while transitioning from the ocean through wildlife, foliage and trees.
Multiple locations are proposed and contracted, starting in Stuart Florida USA.
The impact for preserving genetics, species and ecosystems is immeasurable.
Nature is all we have to preserve or destroy; it will save us if we save it first.
Use of funds: to paint the Stuart Florida wall and for a local and virtual simultaneous fundraising event and wall unveiling. Submission to other cities and building owners is in progress.
