ORCAIreland

ORCAIreland – Ocean Research & Conservation Assocation, dedicated to monitoring and minimising disturbance to marine megafauna in Irish waters. The team just launched a buoy off the coast of Baltimore, Cork that will collect data through a hydrophone listening to the calls of different sea species to lead future warning systems to help ships avoid hitting whales and dolphins (Sky News, 2021).

Android phone users can download the Observers App and become a citizen scientist by submitting sightings of water animals in the sea and along our rivers. Be an #oceanhero

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is an international non-profit with a worldwide presence and a mission to protect all marine animals. 

Ireland has a history of ‘unsatisfactory’ fishery controls leading to overfishing of our surrounding seas, depleting indigenous species. The authorities (SFPA) who claim to support a sustainable fishing sector are turning a blind eye (Irish Examiner, 2021).

Reach out to your representative to see what they know and where they stand when it comes to protecting Irish Seas!

You can see them in action in Netflix’s Seaspiracy Documentary.

Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace Ireland provides research, education and outreach so every person who ventures outside can protect and enjoy the outdoors responsibly.

They also take on the challenges, at a global scale, of battling misinformation in the outdoors, trashed natural areas, polluted water, wildlife at risk, damaged trails, overcrowded parks, destructive fires and if that wasn’t enough, they work to develop children as our future champions for nature!

The outdoors are facing serious threats. Ensuring people practice Leave No Trace is essential. Consider these tips if you plan on heading out.

NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council)

NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) works on a broad range of issues in an attempt to safeguard the earth, its people, its plants and animals, the natural system in which all life depends.

They work to foster the fundamental right of all people to have a voice in decisions that affect the environment.

Few everyday decisions are more important to our health—or the health of our planet—than choosing what we eat.

Rare

For more than 25 years, Rare has empowered local communications in over 50 countries to shift from being resource users to environmental stewards (responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices).

Rare motivates individuals, their communities, and their local leaders to adapt their behaviours to benefit both people and nature.

Our Safety Net

The National Environmental Treasure (NET) is a people’s trust fund devoted to the exclusive funding of Canadian environmental organizations, to increase their core capacity in critical areas such as environmental literacy, infrastructure support, public communications, and operational sustainability. 

Most funding for environmental organizations is from private foundations and government, and consequently, it tends to be directed towards larger well-known organizations. By building the first public charitable foundation for the environment, independent of government and private foundations, the NET is designed to directly meet the needs of Canadian environmental organizations.

They are a great example for how to alternatively fund environmental protections around the world.

Check out their podcast for a better idea of  What the F**K is Biodiversity 🙂
