Seas At Risk welcomed the International Fund for Animal Welfare as a new member into its network at its recent Annual General Meeting in Stockholm.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is one of the world’s leading international animal welfare organisations. It works around the world to improve animal welfare by protecting wildlife habitats, reducing commercial exploitation and helping animals in distress. It seeks to motivate the public to prevent cruelty to animals and to promote animal welfare and conservation policies that advance the well-being of both animals and people. As regards marine protection, IFAW is focussing on reducing ocean noise and developing preventive measures to decrease the risk of collision between whales and ships. Seas At Risk is looking forward to working together with IFAW towards the common goal of protecting and restoring the marine environment.
