Vanessa Hudgens is wearing seashells by the seashore.

The shells she's wearing are bra-shells with seaweed barely clinging to her décolletage, we're sure.

And while her sexy mermaid tail is far from demure, we are loving her maritime couture…

Because it's for a good cause!

The 25-year-old actress posed for Project Mermaids in July 2013 and a behind-the-scenes video shows her frolicking playfully with another actress, Kim Hidalgo, as the waves crash behind them. The aquatic campaign was launched by two Southern California photographers who utilize images of models and celebrities in an effort to preserve beaches and oceans.

And that's not the only campaign the Gimme Shelter actress has been posing for as of late.

In a W magazine project titled "Pillow Tweets" Hudgens joined Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Kendall Jenner and more celebs stripping down to nothing in a series of half-naked shots. Looking sultry in black-and-white and sans everything but a sheet, the former child star has definitely shed her Disney girl-next-door image. 

And there's nothing fishy about that!
