We need to stop taking too much out of our sea. And we need to stop putting too much in.

The Marine Conservation Society fights for the future of our ocean through people-powered action – with science on our side. For seas full of life, where nature flourishes and people thrive.

For a cleaner ocean, we find ways to prevent and clean up marine litter and pollution. And we use science to track the health of our waters.

For a better-protected ocean, we secure spaces where species and habitats can recover. Only a sea full of life can absorb carbon and tackle climate change.

For a healthier ocean, we promote sustainable fishing to minimise harm caused by harvesting resources. And we educate the public so consumers can make better seafood-buying choices.

We look for people to join our team who demonstrate our values, but we want you to contribute your own perspectives and experiences which add to our knowledge, and our culture.
