Due to the dynamic nature of Archipelagos’ work, we need to have an understanding of both national and international laws and policies in order to assess the relevant enforcement. This knowledge is required to combat environmental crimes and to implement our management and conservation strategies of the environment. Some of the work involved may include research and legal analysis related to:



  • EU fisheries legislation and Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported (IUU) fisheries.
  • Combating the illegal trade of endangered plants and animals.
  • Combating environmental crimes, pollution incidents and the destruction of natural habitats and wildlife.
  • Shipping, ship traffic and maritime accidents.
  • Uncontrolled use of live ammunition by the armed forces posing threats to public health and wildlife
  • Creating, implementing and managing protected areas.
