Sargassum is a macroalgae that has many benefits for the ecosystem
since it provides food and shelter to living beings.
But in 2014 it began to grow abnormally fast and the coasts of the Caribbean witnessed
how this natural phenomenon started to transform into something unnatural.
Since then the amount of sargassum that reaches the coasts has increased each year,
turning the turquoise waters of the Riviera Maya into a black smelly sea.
Affecting not only the quality of the water but also the ecosystem.
Animals are at risk of being tangled and dying from lack of oxygen.
This project is currently being development with the support of Fujifilm.
