The World Animal Protection has promoted the Sea Change Campaign: tackling ghost fishing gear which aims to save 1 million marine animals by 2018 through measurably reduction of the ghost gear volume. The aim will be reached through removing gears that is already there and rescuing animals already entangled.
The Global Ghost Gear Initiative (GGGI) is a big part of the Sea Change Campaign. GGGI is a cross-sectoral alliance uniting people with the expertise, power and influence to understand and solve the problem of ghost fishing gear at a global scale.
Representatives of GHOST project have been invited to be part of the core group of global stakeholders from different sectors to frame the objectives, structure and function of the GGGI. They will attend the meeting, which will take place in Ljubljana on the 13-14 November 2014.
