When I was a kid I found a snail washed up on the beach so big it filled a margarine container... I remember it being better then finding gold:)
Our oceans are full of life, a plethora of possibilities and rich with memories. The Pacific is immeasurably valuable and worth protecting.
Comment by illustrator:
The Pacific Gold story, while fairly straight forward, reminded me of how kids view the beach. It's a big open area that lends itself to adventure, exploring, and more importantly, a connection to nature. I hope the image could evoke those memories in adults.
