  • We have integrity: we are true to what we say, acting with honesty and ethics in all we do.
  • We are a community: people are at the heart of everything we do – from our colleagues, volunteers and supporters - to all those we engage with to inspire action and bring about change.
  • We are credible: we are a science-based organisation and use our years of experience and evidence to underpin our opinions and policies.
  • We are positive: we are optimistic about the future of our ocean and do all we can to drive change and inspire action.
  • We are progressive: it is vital we improve the health of our ocean and we encourage new thinking and innovative approaches to achieve this. We are response, adaptive and always learning.
