If you’re looking for something to do on Earth Day, check out the Splurge gallery opening on April 22, from 5pm to 10pm. On display will be a series of marine photographs from prominent Mexican and American photographers. The opening includes a cocktail reception and door prizes. Proceeds of this special¬†event will be used to raise awareness of the environmental impact felt in the Bay of Banderas from development and pollution.

The event was chosen to highlight Earth Day, an event that marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in the United States. It was started in the 1970s as a grassroots movement and the day is now celebrated in more than 175 countries.

Banderas Bay houses tremendously diverse sea-life, including many endangered and rare species. Photographs of the most beautiful and unique creatures found in the Bay of Banderas (Riviera Nayarit) will be on display and for sale.

If you can’t make the opening, don’t despair. You can pick up copies of the prints from April 22 until World Ocean Day on June 8th.

Splurge Gallery is located at Lazaro Cardenas 60, Bucerias, Nayarit. Bucerias is approximately 20 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta on Hwy 200.
