Expedition cruise company Noble Caledonia has agreed a charity partnership with Sea-Changers aimed at raising significant additional funds for UK marine conservation projects. Funds will be raised via a combination of on-board fundraising activities and opportunities for guests to donate, as a way of off-setting the environmental impact of their cruise. The partnership will operate on all of the company’s British Isles based cruises from the 2014 season. 100% of the money raised by Noble Caledonia’s guests will be passed on to relevant marine conservation charities and projects, with no administration costs subtracted.

 

Concern about marine pollution and conservation is growing amongst UK surfers, a recent online survey aimed at the surfing public has shown. The survey aimed to find out if those who enjoy surfing as a leisure pursuit are concerned about the marine environment and conservation issues. It was commissioned in January 2013 by Sea-Changers in collaboration with Surfers Against Sewage, and was completed by 300 surfers.

Sea-Changers have submitted their views of the Government's proposals and you can read our response in full here.
