World Animal Protection is an animal welfare organization with regional hubs in: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America, and offices in 15 countries, with the international office in London. Their Sea Change campaign is aimed at removing ghost fishing gear from the oceans, ie. abandoned gear in which marine life becomes entangled and dies. World Animal Protection has been working to educate the public on the problem of keeping marine animals in captivity since 1991. They work in partnership with others to protect sea life around the world.
