World Oceans Day celebration sets 2 new records

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.

The bottle cap mural was completed in just 6 days

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.
