The mermaid is a known symbol world wide and is the perfect representative for the ocean. I’m really a Mermaid is designed around the local environment, including our local friends such as the Fur Seal, the Weedy Sea Dragon and the Common Dolphin or flowers like the Wondering Postman to name a few. Many people only see the ocean by the shore, enjoying it’s sand and safety, whilst the mermaid and her creatures experience the depths and the life of the ocean; that we have a responsibility to ensure their safety by the way we handle our rubbish a shore.
