9 June 2017, New York, US – Today, at the Ocean Conference of the United Nations, Seas At Risk, supported by its 34 members and Mission Blue, BLOOM, the Deep Sea Mining Campaign and Earthworks, called on the international community to stop deep sea mining in its tracks.

O diretor-geral de Política do Mar na quarta-feira, dia 24 maio, defendeu ser inevitável a exploração de recursos minerais submarinos em Portugal, com o objectivo de desenvolvimento de tecnologias limpas e para combater alterações climáticas, mas garantindo sempre a sustentabilidade ambiental e social.

Two days to go. Come and join us in Aljezur and let's all together say NO to the offshore drilling by Galp/ENI!

Já só falta dois dias. Junta-te conosco em Aljezur e vem dizer não ao furo!

ASMAA will be at the Discoveries Festival in Lagos, which will be held between the 28 April and 1 May. Our stand is in the main terrace next to the Infant statue facing the old army quarters. (next to D. Maria Church / seagulls swimming pool)

Scientists fear that even before one of the last frontiers of exploration, the ocean deep, has been properly studied it will already have been exploited by commercial deep-sea mining looking for rare metal and minerals on the ocean floor, leaving its unique ecosystems badly damaged.
