Padre Island National Seashore

Atomic Carrots is making waves in the world of marine conservation with our latest project—a permanent exhibit entitled “Turning the Tide on Marine Debris" at the Padre Island National Seashore Visitor Center., complete with a captivating Plinko Game, set to redefine the visitor experience at an undisclosed park.

At the heart of this exhibit is a giant Plinko Game where visitors can drop chips, each representing the most commonly found marine debris washed up on the park's shore. As the chips descend to an origin bin, the interactive display vividly showcases the consequences of marine debris on our oceans. The backdrop, as well as the chips, is a testament to our dedication to artistry, with hand-illustrated designs that strike a delicate balance between whimsy and biological accuracy concerning marine life.

Our artistic team, armed with their passion for marine conservation, has meticulously hand-painted animals and scenes for Padre Island National Seashore's upcoming marine debris exhibit, "Turning the Tide on Marine Debris." This collaboration extends our commitment to using creative endeavors as a means to educate and inspire change.

But the impact doesn't stop there. Recognizing the need for accessibility, we're also developing a portable tabletop version of the exhibit for traveling purposes. This version comes equipped with two pop-up banners, ensuring that the important message about marine debris and its effects can reach diverse audiences beyond the park's walls.

The Marine Debris Exhibit and Plinko Game aren't just about showcasing artistry; they are powerful tools for environmental education. Through immersive experiences and interactive elements, we hope to foster a sense of responsibility and inspire visitors to take an active role in preserving our oceans.

As Atomic Carrots continues to blend art with conservation efforts, we look forward to making a splash in raising awareness and turning the tide on marine debris issues, one exhibit at a time. Don't miss the opportunity to explore our impactful exhibit, up throughout February 2024, combining art and education to address environmental challenges.
