'PangeaSeed' is a non-profit organization that uses street art to draw attention to a wide range of ocean issues. Unlike other artistic mediums, street art has the unique ability to reach a wide public audience. These thought-provoking images draw on the power of street art to educate the public about important environmental concerns.

The beautiful images are part of a five-day festival called 'Sea Walls.' The festival is held in Mexico and features artists from all over the world. The works featured in the festival address a wide variety of ocean issues, including plastic pollution, deep ocean drilling and over-fishing. Each piece is done in a unique artistic style. The captivating images are presented as an open air gallery in order to educate the public about the need to address these pressing environmental concerns.
