Doug Woodring and John Quigley of Spectral Q organized over 800 children, teachers and volunteers from 14 schools to form a massive kid-designed Chinese White Dolphin, originally drawn by 9-year-old Leung Man Hin, on the Repulse Bay Beach in Hong Kong.
They collectively formed a giant human design in the sand. Theaerial art event gave students the inspiration that their voices and actions can make a difference by visually communicating their wishes to others around the world.
“The children are alerting the world about their appreciation of the ocean and the need to protect it,” explained Woodring of Ocean Recovery Alliance that organised the event called Kids Ocean Day. “This art is used as a way to communicate their Protect the Ocean message. This complements the Hong Kong Government’s landmark decision to ban trawling in all of Hong Kong’s waters in January 2013, a move which many countries will be watching as the local waters are now expected to have the breathing space they need to recover,” explained Quigley, the creator of this form of aerial art.
