Sea-Changers, has appointed Marine Biologist and Volunteering Development Officer, Pamela Buchan, to the post of Chair to its Board of Trustees. Pamela’s extensive experience of managing committees of volunteers in a charity context and strong understanding of the marine environment and the issues it faces uniquely qualify her to support the growth of Sea-Changers, which exists primarily to help those who use the sea for leisure pursuits to positively contribute to the sustainability of the marine environment.




Pamela Buchan

Following an extended higher education in Marine Biology and work for the Sustainable Fisheries Project, Pamela moved into the field of science communication. In her current position with the British Science Association, Pamela specialises in strategic development of the various national volunteering programmes, as well as her day-to-day role supporting volunteers with their activity to engage the public in science. Never losing her love for the sea, Pamela also volunteers for MARINElife and is entering the dissertation year of her part time MSc in Coastal Zone Management, specialising in stakeholder involvement in coastal management.

Pamela joined the Sea-Changers Board as a Trustee in 2012 and has quickly made a contribution to the continued growth of this new and fast developing charity. She is currently developing a volunteer strategy that will help to build the capacity of Sea-Changers, ensure long term sustainability and expand the scope of the charity’s work.

Commenting on her appointment, Pamela said “The growth and success of Sea-Changers to date has relied entirely on the work of volunteers, so it was a natural next step to offer my help developing the volunteer strategy to make sure that we can continue to grow. In the time that I have volunteered for Sea-Changers we have worked in collaboration with a number of businesses, that feel as passionately about the seas as we do, and passed their donations on to worthy marine charities. I’m excited to be a part of the next step as we continue to harness the goodwill of sea users to make a difference to marine conservation.”
