The three new organisations – Croatia based Sunce, Switzerland based OceanCare and international World Animal Protection join the other 22 member organisations of Seas At Risk to give us our largest membership to date. Each organisation is engaged in various different types of marine work. 

World Animal Protection is an organisation primarily concerned with ending animal suffering, and has offices in a number of European Countries. They have recently begun a campaign against discarded 'ghost' nets, which pose a serious threat to marine mammals in particular, and will be seeking to engage with OSPAR and other relevant policy bodies to diminish this marine pollution threat.

Sunce is an environmental advocacy organisation working out of the beautiful city of Split in Croatia since 1998. They are focused particularly on coastal and waste issues, as well as conservation programmes, sustainable living and environmental education.

OceanCare has been working since 1989 to protect the marine environment from threats such as whaling, pollution (including marine litter and noise) and overfishing. They enjoy good international links and participate in the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

We are delighted to be extending the reach of the Seas At Risk network to new policy areas and countries. Seas At Risk’s membership now extends our reach to 15 countries, and we look forward to expanding our network even more in 2015.
