Founded by Surfing Madonna creator Mark Patterson, The Surfing Madonna Oceans Project's mission is to use the newly reinstalled Surfing Madonna mosaic to raise awareness of issues affecting the world's oceans.
Through that raised awareness, we hope the Surfing Madonna mosaic will help inspire people to re-think their actions and understand their role as powerful agents of change.
YOU can help reverse the serious degradation currently impacting the world's oceans.
The results we wish to see are healthy oceans across the globe in our lifetime.
