Brussels - Seas At Risk member the European Environmental Bureau has joined other NGOs in a call to protect Europe’s environmental and natural habitats legislation from the onslaught of the ‘better regulation’ agenda currently emanating from the European Commission.

Their #NatureAlert campaign was launched in reaction to the Commission’s moves to reassess progress already made in protecting our natural environment, including those of Europe's seas. This is despite the fact that EU citizens regularly cite this area of European action as one of their most popular. The EEB has launched the campaign with an online survey that they are asking all their supporters to complete.

This call follows a report from the EEB last month on their environmental priorities for 2016, directed at the next two EU presidencies of the Netherlands and Slovakia. The report, with contributions and support from Seas At Risk, outlines 9 policy areas where the EU needs further action to protect gains made to date, and serves as a reminder of how much European rules for environmental protection are required.
