Summer updates: New Aqua Taps and more!

Posted on 13th Jul 2022 | Georgia Drew

We’ve had a very busy summer already. Our Only World is really taking off, and our mission to restoring ocean health is in full swing. Here’s a sneak peek at our progress:

  • We’ve launched 17 Aqua taps in Cornwall. They can be found on Google maps.
  • We’ve finished our song, Our Only World
  • We’ve released our children’s book, Yikesy meets Gaia
  • The first two sea tile locations are completed and two more are in progress Here is the Plymouth site

Our new Aqua Taps are here!

You’ll see from our map that we’ve been hard at work plumbing in 17 new water refill stations around Cornwall. You can find our dolphin-designed water refill stations in: Padstow, Wadebridge, Newquay, Mevagissey, Porthtowan Beach near St Agnes, Carne Cove National Trust carpark, Penzance, Looe, Fowey, Falmouth, Gwennap, Saltash, Port Isaac and Porteath

Please come and use the taps to refill your water bottles! They are designed to limit the need to buy plastic water bottles when you’re out and about. Remember to bring your reusable bottle with you to do your bit for the planet.


Our Only World – new song

Our brilliant song that kicked off the charity is out now! It was written by the talented Nashville-based composer, David Smart. We really hope it makes you feel just as inspired to help save the planet as we do. Head here to watch the music video shot in Guernsey.

Please share it with your friends and family to help us spread awareness.

Yikesy meets Gaia is an adventure story written by children for children. Beth Boon has worked with a local school to come up with the adventure tale of Yikesy meets Gaia. It’s a story of an alien who follows a trail of plastic space junk to earth where she finds more plastic than she’s ever seen. Join Yikesy and friends on their journey to help rid the beaches of plastic and save Earth!

All proceeds go towards marine conservation.

We are working on our second edition that will have widgit symbols inside for children who don’t read text.

We have been collaborating with Plymouth University and Falmouth Harbour Board to finish two installations. We are now working with Port Isaac and Mevagissey Harbour Boards to complete two more sites Some of the designs are shown on the right. We hope to be working in the future with the Duchy of Cornwall and Cornwall Council to site more sea walls.

We have been inspired by Living Sea Walls Australia who were finalists in the Earthshot program!

We will be announcing our next location very soon, so come back for more updates.
