In 2012, the renowned photographers Chiara Salomoni  and  Angelina Venturella came together with their shared love of the ocean to create a project that would raise global awareness about the ever-increasing need to protect our oceans. Since then, the two founded Project Mermaid and have travelled the world, photographing lovely mermaids and mermen in order to "bring awareness as to how precious the ocean and beaches are, and to keep this beautiful environment healthy and clean."

Their work is being turned into a beautiful, educational coffee table book and will be shown on June 8, 2016. The project's art show and art book will benefit SaveOurBeach.org with 50% percent of all proceeds.
