WYATT WORKMAN

“Stop feeding the Trash Monster. Be an Ocean Hero.”

Story

Wyatt was seven years-old when he learned about the grave threats and impacts on the ocean from pollution and plastic waste. A lover of the ocean, its fascinating creatures, and the arts, Wyatt combined his passions and created a claymation movie. Eight months later, the movie premiered, starring 70 clay actors and Wyatt’s best friends. The event was a huge success! A party, a workshop, and fundraiser all in one, the day washed $2,800 into the treasure chest of Wyatt’s favourite conservation society, Oceana. The original ‘actors’ sold, Wyatt created drawings, a book, and T-shirt. His movie is a smash hit in classrooms everywhere. Make sure to watch it and take the Ocean Hero Pledge. Join Wyatt’s initiative: educate children, show the movie, create clay heroes and have lots of fun!
