'These are the plants and animals on our doorstep explains conservation consultant and founder of The Beach Coop Aaniyah Omardien.

Conservation consultant and founder of The Beach Coop Aaniyah Omardien chats to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about the painted murals depicting sea-life at St James Beach on the False Bay coast in Cape Town.

Take a listen to more about this inspirational project and how you can help with beach clean-ups:

The Beach Coop is a non-profit organisation based on a love for the marine environment and a need to protect it. It is involved in beach clean-ups and also logs data along the coast with the help of volunteers.

The mural project was inspired by the way in which the tidal pools in the area are cleaned.

The way they are cleaned traditionally is not the best for the environment.

Aaniyah Omardien, Founder and conservation consultant - The Beach Coop

The Beach Coop has been working with the City of Cape Town to change the cleaning protocols.

We are testing them at four different pools.

Spending much time in the pools inspired the coop to create the murals. Spearheaded by member Lisa Beasley's photographs of the sea-life seen while snorkelling, artist Claire Homewood working under the label Care Onelove

It was wonderful working with her, sharing Lisa's images with her, and wanting to share these images with the rest of Cape Town.

These are the plants and animals on our doorstep and very much accessible. Put on a pair of goggles and off you go.
