The pieces range from 8 feet tall to 12 feet tall and weigh up to 2,000 pounds

Ten larger-than-life figures of sea creatures sculpted from plastic trash that washed up on Oregon beaches will be displayed at the  “Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea” exhibit at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium beginning April 22, Earth Day and running through October 21, 2017.

Created by artist and educator, Angela Haseltine Pozzi, who is originally from Olympia, the organization Washed Ashore: Art from the Sea is based in Bandon, Oregon but this is just the second time the spectacular exhibit has been shown in the Northwest. The pieces range from  8 feet tall to 12 feet tall and weigh up to 2,000 pounds and include an 8-foot, 6-inch tall, 1,500-pound penguin made entirely of plastic garbage.
