A photo pledge wall and a plastic bottle cap mural are part of S.E.A. Aquarium’s World Oceans Day celebration as we aim to inspire marine conservation. Both of these now have a place in the Singapore Book of Records as Singapore’s Largest Photo Pledge Wall and Singapore’s Largest Bottle Cap Mural.
Singapore’s Largest Bottle Cap Mural
Since the beginning of June this year, the aquarium has been collecting plastic bottle caps from visitors and staff of Resorts World Sentosa. In less than 3 weeks, 64,126 plastic bottle caps were collected, of which 12,860 were selected to form the words “I Love The Ocean” on a giant wall mural measuring an impressive 7.7m by 3.6m. It broke the existing record of 7.2m by 2.3m set in 2015.
Singapore’s Largest Photo Pledge Wall
At 8.3m by 3.9m, the photo pledge wall is made up of 1,270 photos of staff and guests who pledged their commitment to saving the oceans through small, simple but effective ways.
Each photo is accompanied by a message on how they will protect the oceans, such as not releasing plastics or litter into the oceans, or buying seafood from sustainable sources. These photographs have been pieced together to form a photo mosaic emblazoned with the words “I Protect The Ocean”.
Both initiatives deliver a powerful visual message of how every tiny effort counts and how simple behavioural changes can lead to healthy oceans.
If you haven’t been to our World Oceans Day celebration, be sure to join us this weekend before it ends on 26 June. More details here
