'SOS: Save Our Symbionts' as a body of work attempts to connect the community at large with our coral reef ecosystems through the creative re-imagining of these remarkable biological wonders. By anthropomorphizing these often considered "lower animals" and giving them human form, the hope is that this new representation will invoke and engage our empathy and understanding.
Each character embodies and represents one of the important oceans and seas on the planet. This design is ‘Adina, The Arctic’ representing The Arctic Ocean.

The Arctic Ocean is located mostly in the Arctic north polar region in the middle of the Northern Hemisphere, and is almost completely surrounded by Eurasia and North America. It is partly covered by sea ice throughout the year and almost completely in winter. One major problem to marine ecology faced by the Arctic Ocean is threat of climate change on sea ice and offshore drilling.
The Arctic is warming at a rate twice as fast as anywhere else in the world. Seasonal sea pack ice, habitat for so many Arctic animals, is in rapid decline- with scientists predicting that it could be completely gone by 2040. Animals dependent on sea ice habitats—like walruses, polar bears, and Arctic seals—will face great challenges as sea ice continues to decrease in this region. Warming temperatures in the Arctic also may have the potential to alter global ocean current patterns, with large quantities of fresh water to enter the north Atlantic.
While oil and gas companies have been pressured out of some areas of the Arctic Ocean, drilling leases are still held off the coast of northern Alaska. An oil spill would be catastrophic in Arctic waters as there are no existing methods to clean up oil spilled in icy Arctic waters. 🌊🌊🌊🌊
