The “Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale”

ISPRA is a public research institute that intervenes, in particular with the Emergency at Sea Service, to support the administrations charged to manage an accidental oil or HNS spill at sea. ISPRA has collaborated in the past years with Italian Civil Protection to prepare volunteers in cleanup of oil-polluted shorelines. ISPRA benefit also from the experience of the former Istituto Nazionale Fauna Selvatica integrated in the Institute which is specialised in protection and intervention on marine wildlife.
