Nina & Berry
from the arctic sea

Nina Floaty & Berry Ground which are two foraminifera guiding and teaching kids about the oceans and the wonderful flora and fauna of the deep sea. Foraminifera are a deep-sea life forms and hard to discern by the naked eye. They are very sensitive to physical and chemical environmental changes and therefore, are ideal indicators for paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic history of the Earth.

Nina & Berry became the ambassadors of the children’s education program of ‘Advancing Knowledge on Methane in the Arctic’, Akma-Project and Ocean Senses.
