A Call To Action

As merfolk, we have the power to impact our oceans, let’s do something about it!

Join us for an eco-conference uniting the mermaid community with nature and activism. Plug in for workshops from industry and community leaders, as well as swimming, yoga, portrait photography, shopping, camping, and paddleboarding! We are bringing in world-renowned speakers on topics in three categories: Conservation, Professional Development, and Cosplay.  In each track, conservation awareness is infused within the latest industry information and community topics. At every level of the eco-conference, the festival will promote calls to action: practical action items and organizations they can get involved in. Currently, most of the mermaid community feels a calling to become active, but don’t know how to get involved – or who to get involved with. We will be fostering the individual passions of the merfolk to get involved, and then provide the perfect place to get the information & tools to start.

Connect. Celebrate. Collaborate.
