SEA LIFE Helsinki's own voluntary oil spill containment group consists of the company's personnel. Since 2016 customers with SEA LIFE annual passes have been able to join, and the training will be actively continued. At the moment the group consists of ca. 30 persons with basic training. In addition some members of the group have completed team leader training and training on handling oiled animals.

In addition to training, SEA LIFE has invested in its own oil spill containment basic gear, to enable quick response and action if needed. In case of an oil spill, the SEA LIFE group acts primarily under the command of WWF Finland.


Oil spill containment trainings build and maintain skills that are needed in case of an actual emergency. The training is also a welcome joint effort for the staff, and supports the positive image of the company.
