Aside from being a business owner, board member of multiple non-profits & organizations, race director for Tunnels To The Towers, and an overall great human being - Maxine Gomez is a lover of our oceans. As a Native South Floridian and blue minded friend of the water, Maxine has seen our reefs & oceans deteriorate over her life time, and has become passionately inspired to give back through the 1000 Mermaids Artificial Reef Project. This is why Maxine is asking for YOUR help in creating one of the 1000 Mermaids Artificial Reefs in her name & likeness to be a part of this revolutionary reef project and have her beautiful legacy live forever on the sea floor!
The 501(c)(3) 1000 Mermaids Artificial Reef Project & Gallery of 1000 Mermaids is a monumental public EcoArt project in the form of an artificial reef installation that will also serve as an underwater eco-friendly destination for tourism & research. Its mission is to enhance marine habitats and expand fishery populations while providing enhanced creative, economic and educational opportunities for the benefit, education and enjoyment of residents, students and visitors alike. Mermaids have long been a symbol of humans’ connection to the Ocean, and this artificial reef is being created by body casting real people in the form of mermaids on ocean friendly artistically crafted reef modules that will allow their likeness to live forever on the sea floor.
