 It is part of the "Conservation of sea turtle spawning with community participation in Vietnam", funded by the  US - Fish  and  Wildlife Services.  Under the program, 12 volunteer artists from across the country illustrated 12 murals on house walls and paths in An Binh island commune in the last week of August.

The program aims to promote awareness among local people, administrations, and especially tourists, about the importance of protecting the environment, natural resources and endangered wildlife including marine turtles. This is achieved via practical acts such as cutting the use of plastic bags and reducing the use of single-use plastic bags on Ly Son Island.
