Sea Champions

Sea Champions is our nationwide volunteer programme. You can get involved as much as you like and support us in a variety of ways depending on what appeals to you, whether that’s organising hands-on beach cleans or participating in national campaigns, giving talks, attending local events, raising funds or promoting sustainable seafood choices in your local community. However you choose to help there are plenty of opportunities to suit everyone!

If you have any questions about the programme please email seachampions@mcsuk.org or phone us on 01989 561 573.
