Caspian Nature's seeks to put an end to oil drilling in the Caspian Sea in order to protect the diverse flora and fauna of the sea and its watershed. The group advocates new legislation for environmental protection in the area, and uses the media and public gatherings to demonstrate against the activity of oil companies. The group collected over 5,000 signatures in initiation of a "fax war against oil companies" in 1998.
