Seas at Risk
This is another independent environment NGO in Europe that consists of both national and international organizations striving to protect, preserve and restore the marine environment. Seas at Risk mainly focus on the North and Irish Sea waters, as well as those of the larger North-East Atlantic. Based in the Netherlands, Seas at Risk not only tackles within-the-boarders issues but also partners with international groups. The organization mainly acts as a political and technical platform intervening for environmental groups at international political meetings, as well as at governments’ legal meetings. Currently, the organization is campaigning for an international political amendment on various issues, including: Overfishing Marine environmental damage due to fishing activities Marine pollution from ships Negative effects on marine life due to hazardous oil and gas exploration Species and habitat protection Disposal of hazardous materials into the water bodies
