Alistair Taylor from the charity says they're calling on the European Union to ban the chemical from being discharged at sea.
Dorset MEP Graham Watson is backing the calls.
3 thousand birds have been washed up from Dorset to Cornwall covered in the chemical PIB, so far this year...but it's thought the problem could be much worse.
The Maritime and Coastguard agency say they're getting closer to finding out where it's been coming from.
