Location: Park in front of the building at Antuna Branka Šimića Street, number 70
Time: Friday, June 18 at 6 p.m.
The mysterious snail in real life is only 12 mm in size and lives at depths of 5-10 meters. Although tiny, it has a purpose and is involved in ensuring the balance of marine ecosystems. If we destroy one organism, we have destroyed the next one that depends on it. And we humans are in that chain.
This snail is under constant threat due to intensive fishing, pollution, climate change, and concreting and backfilling of beaches. But the snail decided to fight back! Instead of concrete coming to him, he now adorns the 300-square-foot facade of the building. And with your help, this Friday, a snail will come alive and dance with us!
On Friday, June 18, at 6 p.m. at the park in Blatine, in front of the building at Antuna Branka Šimića Street 70. Come, bring friends, family, kids, four-legged pets, etc., and have fun until 11 p.m.

The mural of the largest small sea snail was created based on a photo by Pero Ugarković, a lover of the underwater world, painted by Split academic painters and street artists Luka Duplančić and Ivan Svaguša. On Friday, the mural will "come to life" with smartphone or tablet screen animations prepared by Mate Žaja and Duje Stojak.
The production of the mural was carried out by WWF Adria - the world organization for nature protection, co-financed by the European Union, and in cooperation with the City District of Blatine, the Tourist Board of Split, and 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 consuming fishery products and the Transforming Mediterranean Small Scale Fisheries project, which focuses on coastal fishers across the Mediterranean.
