We call on the Swiss federal government: Stop shifting away your responsibility, but apply the instruments already in place within the Environmental Protection Act! Under this law, the Federal Council can ban the single-use plastic items, such as take-away items and plastic bags from the Swiss territory, independent of the material used, and can stop the sale of cosmetic and personal products containing microbeads in Switzerland.

On the 12th September 2021 at least 1,428 Atlantic white-sided dolphins and dozens of juveniles were killed in one single mass killing event in the Faore Islands. This is the largest dolphin hunt in the islands’ history and possibly the largest single hunt ever undertaken worldwide. It happened in European waters at the doorstep of the European Union which grants these marine mammals the highest protection status and prohibits any direct takes.
On Friday, 9th September 2022, we handed over your signature to the EU representation in Berne, Switzerland.
We keep you up to date on social media on the latest, exciting and important developments in marine conservation.
