Invasive, the Lionfish Sculpture
Being a coastal town, Rosemary Beach is keenly aware of the environmental threat posed by plastics. A dump truck load of plastic enters the ocean every minute, rapidly destroying our marine ecosystems. Much of this plastic debris is single-use plastics like water bottles that can take up to 450 years to completely degrade.
To help raise awareness of this ever-growing problem, the Rosemary Beach Sculpture Exhibition Committee invited students at Ohana Institute to create a sculpture fashioned from plastic debris collected from our Gulf waters, beach and surrounding areas. The sculpture, titled Invasive, was unveiled on Earth Day.
