The Sea Alarm Foundation
The Sea Alarm Foundation is an initiative by individuals and organisations involved in spills where birds and mammals became oiled. It was generally felt that lessons from passed spills should be learned. Under the umbrella of Sea Alarm constructive steps have been taken to involve those parties with a degree of responsibility during oil spills (including wildlife responders, relevant government agencies, international government and non-governmental organisations [NGOs], and leading parties in industry) in a setting up a strategic programme of action. It is in dialogue with all these parties that Sea Alarm has taken the role of facilitator to improve the state of preparedness throughout Europe. Results from Sea Alarm’s work are increasingly applicable on a global scale.http://www.sea-alarm.org/
