As a child, exploring Florida’s seagrass beds, which speckle the gulf coast, was always a favorite activity of mine. These seemingly endless fields of green swayed gently in the surge, as flickers of movement could be seen darting in and out of view; below glistening patches of sunlight reflecting off the smooth, shimmering surface. Dip below the surface, and you find yourself immersed in a world filled with life. These seagrass beds not only provide a home for hundreds of species of marine life, but also serve as a nursery for some of the larger marine species of the open ocean.
Seagrass Guardians portrays the connection these plant beds have to the health of our global ocean. Here, a young hatchling sea turtle, a temporary resident of these beds, drifts through the seagrass alongside a curious seahorse and hermit crab. The marine plants which make up these beds help to extract toxins and impurities from the water and release fresh oxygen, acting as a natural filter for the earth. Owning this unique piece of artwork not only brings a piece of the ocean into your home, but represents a message we can all relate to; protecting the health of our marine environments.
