... our archipelagos and support scientific research on protecting the Baltic Sea’s unique maritime environment. In March 2019, we donated 50,000 euros to the Finnish environmental organization Keep the Archipelago Tidy Association and the University of Helsinki’s Tvärminne Zoological Station. Together we are stronger.
Håll Skärgården Ren rf (The Keep the Archipelago Tidy Association) is a national environmental organization in Finland for all boaters and people who travel in and around Finnish waterways. All operations are aimed at keeping the archipelago and the Finnish marine environment tidy. The association promotes and looks for solutions to make boating and other water activities as well as harbour operations more environmentally-friendly.
We support Håll Sverige rent (The Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation) in the fight for a litter-free Sweden, both on land and at sea. The foundation works actively to reduce littering, promote recycling and increase environmental awareness among individuals and organizations.
BSAG is a not-for-profit association based in Finland that works to find solutions for re-establishing a good ecological balance in the Baltic Sea. This is to be achieved by providing scientific data to decision-makers and bringing together the appropriate stakeholders.
We work in partnership with Finland’s largest centre for Baltic Sea research – the Tvärminne Zoological Station, which is part of the University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences. The zoological station is located at the entrance to the Gulf of Finland and is open year-round. Researchers from across the world come here to carry out top-quality biological research. The station was founded in 1902, so there is a lot of background information available to study long-term changes in the environment. The station is also located in a nature reserve that people can only visit for research and educational purposes.
