Mermaids for Conservation

We're on a mission

Thru public appearances, mermaid swim classes, and synchronized swimming shows, we are conservation mermaids who swim and freedive to educate, entertain, and inspire folks to join our movement for ecofriendly living, business practices, and tourism.  Drop us a line!
