Here's more about these mascots, and a bit about how they were created.
With zero funding, the marine volunteers get creative! Daiso to the rescue, these critters were wrestled out of socks and gloves! With the aid of needle and thread, some stuffing, and recycling cardboard bits, it's amazing what emerges! Here's some members of Phylum Mollusca, which include not just snails and clams, but also the octopus, squid, nudibranchs and more!
Phylum Echinodermata, which includes sea stars, sea urchins, sand dollars, brittle stars, feather stars, sea cucumbers and more!!
