IRVINE, Calif. — Did you know that the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter is an ardent supporter of ocean conservation? In support of Nick’s effort to promote a healthy ocean for future generations, the Backstreet Boys have invited famed marine life artist and conservationist Wyland to paint a massive ocean themed painting live during the Backstreet Boys performance, Sept. 6, at the Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine, Calif.
Fans can see the painting come to life throughout the show – and have a chance to go to ebay to bid on it for their very own. Proceeds from the original painting will support the Wyland Foundation’s national efforts to promote the conservation of our ocean, lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands.
“The conservation of our oceans is one of the most important issues our world faces today,” Wyland said. “I commend the Backstreet Boys for supporting this cause and encouraging young people to learn about environmental issues affecting our oceans.”
Nick Carter and Wyland met recently during a Wyland art show in the Florida Keys, where the two discussed ways to work together to promote their mutual interest in ocean conservation.
