For the past few weeks Sea-Changers has been running a Christmas publicity campaign via social media. The thought provoking and challenging campaign was designed by Andy Wainwright. The images are designed with a single aim in mind...to challenge us all to actions that will help our oceans this Christmas. Sea-Changers is a charity with a simple approach - small actions and donations by people who love the sea, can create big change. The powerful images challenge us all to take some small action this Christmas; from making a commitment to cutting down our use of plastic, to making a small donation to Sea-Changers which will directly fund UK marine conservation projects...or simply sharing the images more widely to raise awareness.

  

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.

 

This week, Sea-Changers joined many other marine conservation organisations and concerned individuals in adding their voice the Scottish Government's Marine Protection Area Consultation. Below are some of the extracts from our response.

  

Tollesbury Marina and Cruising Club has become the first UK marina to agree a partnership with Sea-Changers. The Marina, based on the Blackwater Estuary in Essex, will raise funds through its marina and chandlery activities and Sea-Changers will distribute these funds to UK marine conservation projects on its behalf. Tollesbury Marina, in supporting us demonstrates its strong environmental commitment.
