Cat Kutay asks, “What is the most significant thing that people can learn from Algae?”, and “How could Algae express that?”

Katherina Petrou says, “The important thing to know is that Algae exist! And that they created the atmosphere that makes life on earth possible.”

Microscopic Algae created and maintain the production of oxygen that we breathe throughout our lives. When Sun is in the sky, Algae release oxygen when they photosynthesize and convert Sun’s energy to grow and make sugars that animals like us like to eat. Like the sugars in sweet corn and strawberries.
