GhostNetWork – What are ghost nets?
Our science communication team used Wudimals wooden animals to create a short stop motion film explaining how fishing nets end up as so-called “ghost nets”, what ghost fishing is and why we have to do something about it!
Special thanks to Wudimals, proud supporters of GhostNetWork.
Olive Ridley Project – Threats of ghost fishing
Threats of Ghost Fishing is a short animation highlighting the effects of ghost gear on sea turtles in the Indian Ocean. The animation was produced by the Olive Ridley Project in collaboration with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and was funded by Global Blue. The Olive Ridley Project, founded in the Maldives in 2013, is an organisation that trains citizen scientists to actively remove ghost gear, detangle marine life (particularly turtles) and record standardised data. We are a small organisation working towards becoming a registered charity.
