This was SO much fun to create! I have spent the last 7 years as a professional mermaid building this character. With my film background I was able to put this all together. I wrote, filmed, edited and animated my entire series, and Serena Bass created the Mermaid Elle character animation.
After working on developing these series for a few months now, in the beginning of 2023 I reached out to Coral Restoration Foundation in the Florida Keys. I've always admired their restoration work and massive coral nursery. Every year I select a different non-profit to donate a percentage of my profits to and I am so happy to not only select Coral Restoration Foundation as a beneficiary but also to collaborate with them and promote their work. Featured here is Captain Coral who explains in de-tail the mer-mazing work they do.
This episode was sponsored by CapeCali.com who designed my beautiful #SavingtheSeas tail I show off during my series. It was created using a drone image we captured in Puerto Rico from shore to deep ocean. Since my Saving the Seas cover the entire ocean itself, this was the mer-fect look for my character. Today, on #InternationalMermaidDay we are also laucnhing the new Saving the Seas Eco SirenaTail for all those Mermaid Elle fans who want to become doppelgängers of Mermaid Elle in a more affordable and eco-friendly way. A percentage of all Cape Cali's profits also donates to ocean conservation.
Here's a first look of the brand new Saving the Seas Eco Sirena Tail:
