Seas At Risk welcomed new member organisation Evo Vitae at its Annual General Assembly held earlier this year. The Slovenian NGO’s marine focus is on tackling marine litter and current campaigns involve awareness raising, beach cleans and monitoring.

Eco Vitae was set up in 2003 and are now the leading NGO in Slovenia working on marine litter. The organisation is also the national coordinator for the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), for which they will be running this year’s annual September beach clean.

Recent projects have also included an awareness raising campaign that publicised the effect of marine litter on wildlife and involvement in European Waste Minimisation Week.

Eco Vitae joins an array of Seas At Risk member organisations from across Europe who have dedicated marine litter programmes and the organisation says they are keen to collaborate further within the EU context to tackle the marine litter problem and achieve their ultimate goal: “No trash in the sea”.

SAR also welcomed the ENT Foundation from Spain at the Annual General meeting that was held in June this year.
