Behind the Scenes: Project Mermaids

May 9, 2016

Summer simply wouldn’t be the same without a road trip to the beach, to enjoy the sand, sun and the creatures that join you, real or mythical. Silverton Casino joins together with Project Mermaids to ensure that these experiences will be able to be shared with generations to come.

Project Mermaids was founded in 2012 with the goal to bring awareness of how truly precious the ocean and beaches are, and how important it is to keep that beautiful environment healthy and clean.  They do so by photographing participants and celebrities to gain awareness with a viral presence on social media and donating 50 percent of the proceeds to the Save Our Beach foundation. The models are transformed into mermaids, largely in part with the help of the extravagant tails made and donated by The Mertailor.

While the desert may seem like an unlikely stop along the journey to protect beaches, a good cause knows no limits and cannot be hindered by location.  Project Mermaids made a stop on its tour this April to shoot our beautiful Silverton Mermaids in action, and the results were as lovely as the cause behind it.

Please enjoy a behind the scenes peak of some of the fun, talent, and of course fins of Project Mermaids’ underwater shoot inside the 117,000 gallon tank that numerous sharks, fish and stingrays call home at Silverton Casino.

Come see the mermaids in action Thursday through Sunday, head here for swim times.
