John Nurminen Foundation and Moomin join to save the Gulf of Finland


One of the world’s most researched seas, the Baltic Sea has a unique and delicate ecosystem. Currently, it is suffering from serious damages: big pollution, modifications of ecological equilibrium in the water, biodiversity changes, and life threats to sea species.

Finnish marine protection organization John Nurminen Foundation has joined forces with popular and worldwide children’s story brand Moomin to clean the Gulf of Finland. The international #OURSEA campaign has attracted the interest of Japan, and their goal is to help fight against one of the most pressing environmental problems in Northern Europe.
