The Baltic Sea is one of the world’s most polluted marine regions and is home to a variety of wildlife species. Swedish ecotoxicologst Dr Anna Roos reports on an encouraging conservation effort to rescue otters and other marine animals from exposure to environmental contaminants that also threaten our Atlantic coast. A key step was establishing the impressive Environmental Specimen bank as part of the Swedish National History Museum in Stockholm.

Dr Anna Roos is curator for the Department of Environmental Research and Monitoring at the Swedish Museum of Natural History.
