Support ocean conservation & the role of art in inspiring environmental stewardship

Every purchase from this collection donates 5% of sales to the Ocean Institute and advocates for ocean conservation & the role of art in inspiring environmental stewardship

SpongeBob Bikini Bottom

SpongeBob was created by marine biologist Stephen Hillenburg, who used art to teach kids about the marine species and ecosystems around them. With its origin in marine science education, the series has always had a deep-rooted connection to the sea. This connection led Paramount and Nickelodeon to launch SpongeBob SquarePants: Operation Sea Change, a global conservation and sustainability initiative to help protect the home of the very creatures that inspired Bikini Bottom. We created this collection in partnership with Paramount Consumer Products to support the Operation Sea Change initiative as well as advocate for the importance of art in inspiring environmental stewardship.

Why advocate for ocean conservation & the role of art in inspiring environmental stewardship?

Besides being huge fans of SpongeBob SquarePants for its creativity, positivity, and forward-thinking themes, we love the show as an example of how art can support environmental science and conservation. Art can provide an opportunity to instill emotion and humanity into science communication while maintaining its scientific integrity. Art can speak for animals, ecosystems, and communities who may not be able to speak for themselves. Art can transform apathy into enthusiasm, enthusiasm into action, and action into change. And in special cases when an artistic expression becomes widely popular like the animated adventures of a charismatic sponge, it can inspire an entire generation.

To help you advocate for ocean conservation & the role of art in inspiring environmental stewardship, the following

Educational Resources

are included with your purchase:

Call-To-Action Postcards

Raising awareness is important, but it’s not enough! We all need to take action to help turn the tide. We worked with our science partners to create subject specific post cards that explain the top beneficial actions you can take on behalf of the species or ecosystem you’re supporting with your purchase. Shipped with every order, these cards are informative, beautiful and ready for a stamp so you can share it with a friend. 

Educational Series

Our team of salty science communicators hit the library and dug up everything you need to know about the species or ecosystem you’re supporting with your purchase. From past history and current status to future conservation challenges and specific ways you can get more involved, each series takes a deep dive into the causes we support so you can stay informed.

Each series consists of around 8 parts, emailed to you each week after your order is delivered.  And fear not, you can unsubscribe at any time, but we promise you won’t want to ;-)
