Full Story


Environmental activists and concerned citizens from around the world will gather at the Dead Sea where they will float on the water – an experience unique to the Dead Sea.


Tunick's Dead Sea shoot from last year and the media storm that followed contributed to raising awareness to the deteriorating conditions of the unique natural treasure.


Following the reactions to the shoot, Tunick decided to join this year's protest to raise awareness to the increasing disappearance of the Dead Sea.


This is the third mass float which will be held to remind people that the Dead Sea is not just a natural treasure but also serves as a source of remedies for patients from around the world who are in desperate need of its medicinal benefits.


The Save Our Sea group includes people who suffer from various skin conditions such as psoriasis and who count on the Dead Sea area climate and its curative attributes to treat skin conditions.
