International scientific community says NO to oil drilling in Greece

100 scientists and scientific bodies and organizations from Greece and all over the world, jointly signed  a call to the Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, asking him to cancel the hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation program in the Hellenic Trench. Their core argument is that the aforementioned program will have devastating effects in the country’s marine environment and marine life, even from the first phase of seismic surveys. The resolution text is an initiative of WWF Greece supported by Pelagos Cetacean Research Institute.

The resolution text will remain open for additional signatories.
