The Oceans have been a vital source of renewable food since the birth of mankind, we depend on their health and well-being. Yet marine eco-systems all over the world are in rapid decline. The Marine Foundation’s approach is creative, innovative and positive enabling small scale but highly effective localised marine sustainability whilst engaging an international audience and galvanising people from a wide variety of sectors. We can be part of the solution and ensure a healthy ocean for all future generations.
Please take a minute to watch our crowd-funding video to meet the team and learn more about this project.
Your support could transform this project. Please help us to make this project happen by supporting our crowd-funding campaign. There are some exciting rewards available including the opportunity to join us in Belize for an underwater adventure diving with us as we take the Sea Goddess underwater to her new home. And of course please do help us to spread the word.
More about The Belize Sea Goddess and The Marine Foundation
The Marine Foundation has successfully installed a number of sculptures in Indonesia; Apsara was our most recent artwork sunk in east Bali in October where we have established the Jemeluk Bay Underwater Gallery with the local fishing community and Reef Check Indonesia. We created a short mood film after our previous successful crowd-funder with Indiegogo. You can watch Apsara spirits of the sea.
In June 2011, The Marine Foundation installed the Coral Goddess in Pemuteran, an award winning coral restoration project where the local community have managed to restore their local reef and bring it back to life, creating a thriving Eco-tourism destination.
The Marine Foundation is thrilled to be taking its work to a new continent and are really keen to ask for your support. Together we can make a stunning work of art and help a community make a vital transition to becoming guardians of their marine treasures. We all benefit knowing we are putting in place innovative practices that will improve and maintain the health of our sea for all future generations. Please donate or help spread the word.
We are working to a tight timeframe; presently Toin and Celia working on the designs and organising the preparation for our arrival in Belize in mid May. The work will be created and installed during our two week stay. We have an amazing team and we are thrilled to invite you on this extra-ordinary journey.
Donations will support the travel, expenses and creation of the Belize Underwater Goddess and the initiation of the under water gallery. This campaign will effect lives locally as well as generating amazing imagery that will promote a sustainable and creative relationship with our marine treasures around the world.
