Baltic Sea Heritage Rescue Project

Baltic Sea Heritage Rescue Project is a Baltic Sea Nature & Heritage Protection Association e.V. project that engages people from many countries who care about the protection of the Baltic Sea.

Our project stands for protection of the ecosystem in the Baltic Sea by finding, exploring and documenting the objects found at the ship wreck sites. The main mission of our explorations is to document the condition of the wrecks found in the sea, account for existing human remains and note the dangers to which the wrecks are potentially exposed. These threats are usually associated with illegal trawling, leading to seriously destroyed wreck sites.

Working in cold-water temperatures, currents and other challenges at depths up to 100 meters, we not only search for the shipwrecks, but also investigate and document the abandoned mines.

Over the past few years, our group of wreck divers has developed into a specialist team, dedicating their time to finding and identifying the shipwrecks lying in the depths of the Baltic Sea. Each member of our team is a professional in his or her field, and is thus equally important for the success of our projects.

Our main goal is to search for, identify, document and protect the wrecks, lying deep in the Baltic Sea.

Also, we aim to detect the ghost nets at deep wrecks, salvage the wrecks and provide the nets for proper disposal.

Another meaningful aspect of our work is working on joint projects in cooperation with local fishermen and fisheries associations in order to protect and restore the ecosystem of the Baltic Sea.
