Our Ocean work focusses on three threats to the marine environment and biodiversity: plastic pollution, fishing gear, and commercial exploitation of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises).

EIA has been campaigning for healthier, protected oceans since our very beginning back in 1984. Since then, we’ve addressed rogue whaling by Iceland, Japan and Norway, dangerous pollutants in whales and dolphins, the plight of the critically threatened vaquita porpoise in Mexico and, most recently, we’ve led the charge on international work to secure a legally binding global plastics treaty to combat the rising tide of plastic pollution, building on our work to encourage major supermarket chains to significantly cut the amount of plastics they put into the environment.
