The European Elasmobranch Association is an international body of scientific experts in the field of elasmobranch biology, urging the EU to actively engage in the conservation and management of sharks and rays.
The Pew Environment Group, the conservation arm of The Pew Charitable Trusts, strives to advance scientific understanding of the causes, consequences and solutions to environmental problems, to design innovative policy solutions to these problems, and to mobilise public support for implementing these solutions. We are focused on reducing the scope and severity of the destruction of the world’s oceans, with a particular emphasis on global marine fisheries. The objective of the Pew Environment Group’s European Marine Programme is to support the European Union in ending global overfishing and reducing destruction of the world´s oceans. The Shark Alliance was initiated, and is co-ordinated, by the Pew Environment Group.
Project AWARE Foundation (International)
www.projectaware.org Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time.
Over the past two decades of underwater conservation we’ve learned that divers are true leaders in ocean protection. We’re ocean heroes numbering in the millions across the globe. We believe together our actions will make a huge impact and will help to rescue the ocean.
