This is Campi, the International Epilepsy Day mascot. 

He is very gentle and kind and sometimes he is a little shy. Everyone is his friend.

So, you might ask, why did we choose a seahorse? We wanted to have a character that had a connection to epilepsy in some way and Campi just happened to fit the bill. The seahorse is genus Hippocampus and its shape resembles a part of the brain that has the same name and is important in producing seizures and epilepsy.

It’s also an animal that people find fascinating, graceful and beautiful.

We hope that you will enjoy watching Campi and his friends in these videos!
