Quick actions - take a minute to help save our seas


There are lots of little things you can do that will have a big impact. Get your friends and family involved too - and together we can make an even bigger difference:

Tweet for a Welsh Marine Litter Strategy

With our latest Beachwatch results behind us, we're writing to Ministers to push for more action to reduce marine litter. Northern Ireland already has a Marine Litter Strategy and Scotland is planning to introduce one. England is lagging far behind unfortunately.

Twitter action: Wales just need a nudge in the right direction so please get behind us by tweeting Alun Davies AM, the Natural Resources Minister. Either click on the twitter icon below and an automated tweet should pop up, or copy and paste the following into a tweet. Thanks for helping!

@WG_NatResMin Please help us clean up #Welsh beaches with a Welsh #MarineLitter Strategy: @mcsuk


Carry on the Fish Fight

Our ocean deeps teem with life, including many species found nowhere else. Many deepwater fish are slow growing, can live many decades but reproduce only slowly - so they, and their habitats, are all too quickly decimated by modern fishing gears. We're campaigning to stop the most destructive fishing practices in the Northeast Atlantic - click on the link to add your voice to our petition. >> Take action now.
