Your contribution will help to support our projects which include:
Marine Environment Education Programme - We provide pupils at schools around the UK with the opportunity to develop a relationship with the coastal and marine environment by funding trips to the coast and delivering outdoor sessions. We would like to create a movement so that the next generation can be inspired, be proactive in helping to manage our oceans and coastal areas, and encouraged to develop solutions for its issues.
National Student Awards- We recognise and reward students who are working on, or who have developed, an outstanding project in the marine and environmental field with the potential to have a positive and sustainable impact. This scheme is open to students at any level of higher education in the UK and has become a platform to further their research and studies.
Marine Environment Roadshow- We aim to raise awareness of the threats to the marine environment in the UK and USA through our Roadshow which includes activities such as beach cleans, film screenings and art workshops.
All of these projects are aimed at educating people about the threats to our oceans, highlighting the importance of personal responsibility and how they can help to shape the future of our oceans.

We all need to make small adjustments to our daily life that can make a big difference to help improve the environment.
Energy efficient - Turn off all electrical appliances at the wall when not in use, TV's etc still use power even when on ‘stand by’
Renewable energy - Switch to cleaner energy, choose power companies that offer renewable energy sources such as Ecotricity
Sustainable produce - Buy local food, in season produce, purchase sustainable fish and eat lower down in the food chain
Eco friendly products - Choose items produced from recycled content, sustainably sourced wood and biodegradable products
Recycle - Encourage a recycling system in your community, office, school and at home
• Keep all rubbish for rubbish bins and recycle where you can
• Skin products such as sunscreen are known to be harmful to the environment - choose a non toxic and biodegradable option
• Beach clean ups are the best way to be proactive and make a difference - join us for one of our beach clean events!
Marine litter is one of the biggest threats to marine life and to nearby coastal communities. It damages wildlife mainly through entanglement and ingestion, and affects coastal communities by contamination and health hazards. We can help to reduce marine litter by minimising waste on the beach and educating others its negative impacts.
• Choose environmentally sensitive cleaning products
• Avoid spreading invasive species by cleaning thoroughly
• Choose anti-fouls with low levels of biocides, copper and Volatile Organic Compounds instead use paints such as vinyl or silicone
• Keep your waste until you are on land, don’t throw rubbish overboard
• Always carry an oil/fuel spill kit on board
The impact of boating on aquatic ecosystems is significant. The volume of hydrocarbons and oil pollution that enters the water around the coasts is estimated to be equivalent to an Exxon Valdez oil spill. We can reduce this effect on the environment by careful attention to routine boat maintenance and use.
