Mission of the organisation
Established in 1999, Sea Alarm has its roots in Europe’s wildlife rehabilitation community. With the goal of creating a more professional and coordinated network of European oiled wildlife responders, Sea Alarm has made significant contributions to the development of oiled wildlife preparedness and response capabilities, and to building response capacity and cooperation across Europe. Today Sea Alarm is focused on expanding these activities throughout the world.
Working in close collaboration with NGOs, government authorities, and the oil and maritime industries, Sea Alarm initiates and facilitates strategic preparedness activities for oiled wildlife response: raising awareness of the importance of wildlife response planning and advocating for further integration into spill response activities, as well as enhancing the professionalism and cooperation in oiled wildlife response efforts.
