Treasures of the Baltic Sea photo exhibition

14.8.2019 - 4.10.2019

Marine nature forms part of the Finnish national landscape. How does this landscape look like below the surface? The poor state of the Baltic Sea is brought up frequently. However, along the Finnish coast, there are still amazingly beautiful places worth protecting and conserving. The under-water photographs illustrate the diversity of our Baltic Sea nature. 

The Finnish Inventory Programme for the Underwater Marine Environment (VELMU) maps the underwater nature along the entire Finnish coast. Many of the photos in the exhibition have been taken during the inventory field work. The results are also available in an open map service (paikkatieto.ymparisto.fi/velmu). In 2017, a book (Meren aarteet, currently available only in Finnish) was published. It was awarded the WWF Finland’s Nature Book of the Year prize the same year.
