FINDING BABY BLANCA - THE ZULY SANGUINO STORY
An unknown Native American writer asserted that "Women Hold Up Half the Sky". In truth, and in many instances,
"Women are the Sky". Zuly Sanguino’s story demonstrates that she is a woman who wants to not only be the sky,
but the sun, the moon, and the ocean and dreams, to caress the teeming life in the turquoise waters of Hawaii’s Pacific
Ocean. This documentary will tell the unparalleled story of how a young woman rose for the depths of poverty, abuse, despair,
and suffering that few endure, to become a warm, smiling, positive and successful artist, environmental activist, motivational
speaker, and woman of distinction; all despite the fact that she was born with no arms or legs.
Through the insight of Ray Hollowell, Bill Wyland and Joanne Tawfilis, coupled with remarkable fate, one of Zuly’s dreams
to swim in an ocean among living, graceful and playful dolphins, will unfold as one of this decade’s most important documentary
films. This contemporary story will inspire, motivate, entertain and touch the hearts of those who will witness, through
exquisite film making, how the strong survive and how dreams can come true, while illustrating how the fragility and partnership
of humans and sea life, are joined through the human experience.
Zuly will enter the ocean for the first time, learn to swim with the aid of veteran Honolulu lifeguard, Ramses Franco, and
encounter an array of sea life that will include large pods of spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, colorful fish, and hopefully
meet Baby Blanca, the rare white spinner dolphin that some Hawaiians call an Ocean Angel.
Zuly will paint the first mural of her life with renowned artist and humanitarian, Joanne Tawfilis, and her famous Art Miles
Mural Project, that consists of distinguished artists such as Hawaii’s acclaimed nature artist, Patrick Ching, Greek Olympic
artist and iconographer, Rip Kastaris, and globally recognized art expert and gallery owner, Bill Wyland.
The goal of this film is to document the amazing transformation of Zuly Sanguino rising from the depths of third world poverty,
and with the help of her new friends from PlanSEA.org, Bill Wyland Galleries International, the Art Miles Mural Project
and their philanthropic colleagues, this determined young lady will expand her career as an artist and motivational speaker,
and will finally have the opportunity of becoming an inspirational figure to people around the world.

PlanSEA Projects In Development
- The SEA of INSPIRATION Television Series: PlanSEA.org in association with WoundedWear.org and the United States
Navy League Honolulu Council present the SEA of INSPIRATION initiative. We sponsor wounded veterans and a family member
an all expenses paid ocean adventure trip of a lifetime to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. Our veteran production crew documents
their amazing ocean adventures, which will broadcast in both national and international television markets, plus internet
TV based distribution. The initiative is designed to encourage and inspire wounded service members from the United States
military by helping them connect with the healing, therapeutic powers of the ocean. Episodes one and two document Senior
Airman Brian Kolfage and Corporal Todd Love (USMC) Retired and their iconic stories of surviving life-threatening injuries
and coming back from the brink.
The SEA of INSPIRATION initiative has expanded to include children and adults with both mental and physical disabilities
such as Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome and Cystic Fibrosis. We are currently in post-production of several segments
which will feature inspiring stories that will highlight our participants having the time of their lives while immersing
themselves in the healing powers of the ocean! Visit www.seaofinspiration.org to learn more.
- The PlanSEA.org OCEAN SAFETY Initiative: Our multilingual team accompanied by our adorable animated characters join up
with Honolulu City and County Lifeguards and top watermen and women of Hawaii to learn about ocean safety, including rules
and regulations to follow, while enjoying the tropical beaches and waters of our islands. A safe vacation makes for a fun
A Message From Our Founder
Environmental and oceanic education has been noted as lacking in regular K-12 programs, with a shockingly low amount of
students understanding even the most fundamental principles behind marine impact on the ecosystem. New projects such as
Google Oceans (a PlanSEA.org partner), work to educate the general population about our oceans, and raise the bar of ocean
literacy and education throughout the world.
PlanSEA.org is here to make a positive impact on the entire world, and we would love for you to join us. Please consider
this unique opportunity to take a leadership role in our worthwhile projects that will benefit people of all ages worldwide
for generations to come.
To the SEA!
