Protect endangered Harbor Porpoises

Project Goals

Sea Shepherd patrols the Baltic Sea to document illegal nets and report them to local authorities.

Project Location

Norway, Europe

Project Details

The endangered harbour porpoises are considered to be particularly protected under EU law, and the member states are obliged to take measures to ensure this protection in the natural habitats of the harbour porpoises is upheld. Nevertheless, by exemption regulations the use of gillnets is allowed in FFH-areas and nature sanctuaries.

Harbour porpoises often end up as bycatch in these nets and drown. Thus, Germany violates the protective laws of the EU. Sea Shepherd patrols the Baltic Sea to document illegal nets and report them to local authorities.
