Campaigns and Appeals

Our wildlife is suffering, our fish stocks are dwindling and our seas and shores are being polluted. Together, we can stick up for our precious seas. There are lots of ways you can get involved, locally and nationally, and we have the tools to help you make a difference in your community and beyond. With human activity having such a detrimental effect on the state of our marine environment we are at a pivotal point in how the future will pan out. Campaign with us, joining together with others to be the voice for our seas, and support our appeals. Collectively, we’re a force that people in power can’t ignore.
