Mike’s Dive Cameras has joined its parent company Mike’s Dive Store by signing up to contribute to UK marine conservation activities by supporting the charity, Sea-Changers. The specialist underwater camera retailer will donate 1% of the value of all of its online sales to the charity.
The money will feed into Sea-Changers’ grant fund which is distributed to UK based marine conservation projects. Mike’s Dive Store has already raised over £10,000 for marine conservation since it began its partnership with Sea-Changers in 2015. The underwater camera specialist company will now also join the growing community of Sea-Changer businesses and individuals who are passionate about giving something back to the seas they love.
Sea-Changers will distribute the donated money, in accordance with their funding policy, to a range of projects engaged in: direct marine clean up action, education and awareness-raising about marine conservation issues, species and habitat protection, and conservation research. Many of the projects they fund undertake grassroots community conservation work that simply would not take place without the Sea-Changers grant.
Jussi Hokkanen, MD at Mike’s Dive Cameras said: “Just like our parent company we are delighted to support Sea-Changers in their work. We know that our customers have a great passion for the under-sea environment and Sea-Changers is helping to keep it beautiful so we can all continue to take great photographs of a healthy marine environment and beautiful marine creatures.”
Rachel Lopata, Co-Founder of Sea-Changers said: “It’s great to be working with Mike’s Dive Cameras and to receive their fantastic support. Sea-Changers was founded by divers and we hope that our fellow divers will all buy their cameras and housings at Mike’s Dive Cameras, safe in the knowledge that they are also supporting UK marine conservation projects.”
