Island of Vitality – Croatia




Néa Dune



Néa Dune is Croatia’s first mermaid (SireNea) for the past decade, and hopes to change that! On land she is a professional multilingual actress, creature performer, model/covergirl and multi-faceted creative, splitting time between Europe and USA. As a volunteer and humanitarian for the majority of her life, environmental work is a cause extremely dear to Néa's heart.

She conceived MerAdria in the heat of the pandemic lockdown and strives for it to become an international oasis for merfolk lovers, joining forces with her fellow Balkan mers from Slovenia, and to raise awareness on keeping their beautiful native Adriatic Sea clean and safe!
