Dalmacija News reports, this tiny creature, only 12 mm in size, is extremely important for the balance of marine ecosystems. It is under constant threat from concreting and embankment of beaches. Instead of concrete coming to him, with the help of WWF, the World Conservation Organization, it now adorns the 300-square-foot facade of the building. Each species has its place in the ecosystem – it is up to us to preserve them. After all, our survival on Earth depends on them.

You can see what a little sea snail looks like when it comes to life here! Activation is easy, using a smartphone or tablet. With the help of the free Artivive application, a mural is scanned in the park in Blatine in front of Šimićeva 70, and this mysterious creature will come to life on the screen of the device.

The mural of the largest small sea snail was created based on a photograph by sea expert Pero Ugarković, painted by Split academic painters and street artists Luka Duplančić and Ivan Svaguša, and his virtual life was breathed in by animators Mate Žaja and Duje Stojak.

The mural production was carried out by WWF Adria, co-financed by the European Union, and in cooperation with the City District of Blatina, the Tourist Board of the City of Split, and the Split-Dalmatia County – Administrative Department for Tourism and Maritime Affairs. The mural was created as part of the pan-European Fish Forward project to raise awareness of the social and environmental impacts of the consumption of fishery products and WWF’s project to transform coastal fishing in the Mediterranean.
