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.


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.


A project funded by a Sea-Changers grant has found there are more than 700 seals living in the Thames Estuary. Teams of volunteers carried out the count by air, land and water and recorded 708 grey and harbour seals along the Thames for the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) survey. Find out more about the project and watch a video about it here.

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.


On June 13th 2013 Helen Webb, from Sea-Changers, took part in a panel discussion at Thinkspace, London Imperial College titled, ‘iCampaigning – Can Digital Save the Seas?’ The event was organised by jpcreative part of a thought provoking networking and discussion series, exploring the way digital innovations shape the world we live, work and create in. The event can be viewed on You Tube.
