The Meaning of San Miguel de Cozumel’s Over 30 Murals 

In five days, 35 large-scale public murals were created throughout Cozumel’s downtown, addressing pressing marine environmental issues such as shark finning, overfishing, coastal development, climate change, and coral reef conservation. This series of Sea Walls murals helps educate and raise much-needed awareness within local and tourist communities about the challenging situations facing our oceans and the life that calls them home.

Enjoy Cozumel’s Beauty

Notably, the Sea Walls project features more than 500 murals created in 19 countries worldwide. Sea Walls unites and involves communities on a global scale. Each mural has a unique story behind it.
