Nina & Berry Foraminifera mascots illustartion


These are Nina Floaty & Berry Ground 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 form 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 are the two mascots of the children’s education program of ‘Advancing Knowledge on Methane in the Arctic’, and Ocean Senses. This project is endorsed by the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
