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.

About Sea Champions

Our Sea Champions are involved in a huge range of activities
that support our work and help protect our seas, wildlife and beaches.



Did you know?…

Over 500,000 records on undersea habitats and species have been collected by volunteer Seasearch divers providing significant evidence for inshore ‘marine protected areas’

MCS launched Seasearch in 2003 to train volunteer divers to record and monitor wildlife and habitats

To date, our beach cleans have removed 6 million pieces of litter

Help protect marine wildlife

We need to secure £50,000 for the next two years to make the case for new Marine Protected Areas and survey existing sites to prove just how effective they are. Your support is vital in helping us make this happen.
