Ecologists demand protection of Barents Sea

Oct 14, 2005 02:00 AM

Russian and Norwegian environmental youth organizations have united to protect the Barents Sea.
"Activists of Etas [Arkhangelsk region], Nature and Youth [Murmansk region] and Natur Og Ungdom [Norway] are concerned about the outlook of oil and gas production in the Russian and Norwegian parts of the Barents Sea, which has led them to sign a Concept for Joint Actions and demand a solution to environmental problems related to oil and gas complex's activity in the Barents Euro-Arctic region," the Bellona international environmental organization told.

The activists want the prospecting and development of new offshore oil and gas fields in the Barents Sea to be banned.
The activists also signed an appeal to the Norwegian leadership, in which they propose establishing oil and gas production free zones in the Barents Sea.
